Constance Guisset founded her studio specializing in design, interior architecture and scenography in 2009. Her work is marked by a search for balance between ergonomics, delicacy and imagination. Its objects are all attempts to explore the embodiment of movement through lightness or surprise, while defending a requirement of comfort and reception of the bodies and their gestures.
After studying at ESSEC and Sciences Po, then a year at the Tokyo Parliament, Constance Guisset chose to turn to creation and entered the ENSCI – Les Ateliers from which she graduated in 2007.
In 2008, she received the Grand Prix du Design from the City of Paris, the Prix du Public at the Design Parade from Villa Noailles and two VIA Project Aids. In 2010, she was named Designer of the Year at Maison & Objet and won the Audi Talents Awards.
Constance Guisset works with many French and foreign furniture publishers such as Petite Friture, Mustache, Tectona, Nature & Découvertes, Molteni, LaCividina, ZaoZuo, etc. The studio also designs industrial objects for LaCie – Seagate or jewelry for the MiniMasterpiece Gallery, for example.
Since 2009, Constance Guisset has produced scenographies for shows, notably those of the ballets Le Funambule, Les Nuits, La Fresque et Winterreise by Angelin Preljocaj, the concert by Laurent Garnier at the Salle Pleyel or the choreography Everyness by the company Wang
Ramirez. She also imagines exhibition scenographies for the Musée des Arts Décoratifs in Paris, the musée du quai Branly in Paris and the Palais des Beaux-Arts in Lille or for brands such as Galeries Lafayette and Molteni & C (2011, Prize for the best scenography, D’Days, Paris).
Constance Guisset also designs interior architecture projects, for Van Cleef & Arpels (2019) and for Accor (2014). Since 2017, she has illustrated and written children’s books, published by Albin Michel Jeunesse.
In May 2012, a first solo exhibition was dedicated to the work of Constance Guisset, at the Chapelle des Calvairiennes, Center for Contemporary Art in the Pays de Mayenne. From September 2016 to January 2017, a retrospective takes place at the mudac (museum of contemporary design and applied art) in Lausanne. A monograph has been published for this
opportunity. An exhibition was dedicated to him at the Museum of Decorative Arts in Paris from November 2017 to March 2018. His work will be presented in a personal exhibition at Villa Noailles this summer and at the French Institute in Milan in 2021.
