Constance Guisset

Constance Guisset is a French designer. She founded her studio in 2009, specialized in product design, interior design and scenography. Her work is marked by a search for balance between ergonomics, delicacy and imagination. Her objects are as many attempts to explore the incarnation of the movement by lightness or surprise, while defending a requirement of comfort and hospitality for the body.
After studying at ESSEC business School and Sciences-Po Paris, then a one-year internship at Japan Parliament in Tokyo, Constance Guisset chooses to turn towards design and enters ENSCI design school from which she graduates in 2007. In 2008, she is awarded the “Grand Prix du Design de la Ville de Paris”, wins the Prize for the Public of the Design Parade at La Villa Noailles (Hyère, France), as well as two grants from the VIA (French institute for the valorisation of innovation in design). In 2010, she is named among the “ten designers of the year” in Maison & Objet, Now! Design à vivre and is awarded the Audi Talents Awards.
Constance Guisset works with many French and international furniture editors such as Petite Friture, Moustache, Richard Ginori, Zanotta, Tectona, Molteni&C, La Cividina, ZaoZuo, etc. She also designs industrial objects for companies like La Cie – Seagate or travel accessories for Louis Vuitton Malletier.
Since 2009, Constance Guisset has realized the stage designs of several shows, among which Angelin Preljocaj’s solo, Le Funambule, his ballets Les Nuits, La Fresque and Winterreise, Laurent Garnier’s concert at the Salle Pleyel or EVERYNESS by Compagnie Wang Ramirez.
She also imagines scenographies for exhibitions 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 Les Galeries Lafayette or Molteni&C (2011, Paris Designers’ Days award for best scenography).
In 2021, she designs the permanent scenography for the Philharmonie des enfants within the Philharmonie de Paris and the permanent scenography for the Musée d'Art Moderne de Fontevraud.

Constance Guisset also conceives interior design projects, for instance a restaurant in La Samaritaine in Paris for Groupe Ludéric (2021), collective spaces for Van Cleef & Arpels (2019) and for Accor (2014).

Since 2017, she has been illustrating and writing children's books, published by Albin Michel Jeunesse.
From 2012 to 2014, Constance Guisset has developed a new concept of reception areas for Accor hotel group Suite Novotel, which is currently deployed in Europe.
In May 2012, the first exhibition presenting the work of Constance Guisset took place at the Chapelle des Calvairiennes, Centre d’Art Contemporain du Pays de Mayenne. In September 2016 an exhibition about her work opens at the mudac in Lausanne. A monography is also published on this occasion. The Musée des Arts Décoratifs in Paris dedicates an exhibition to her work from November 2017 to March 2018.
In 2021, her work will be seen in a solo show at the Villa Noailles in Hyères (France). The Institut Français in Milan (Italy) will dedicate a show to her creations in 2023.
