Anne Couillaud lives and works as an independant designer in Lyon.

She graduated from the Design Academy Eindhoven in 2013, in the Man and Well-being department.

Her aim is to create not necessarily revolutionary but relevant and sustainable products. Every project is inspired by a cultural research and a context. She also likes to narrate this encounter with places, people and their know how. She has a strong fascination for material language and crafts.

She has a multicultural background. As a child she grew up in Africa and then moved to multiple countries (Germany, France, England, Netherlands). This life abroad shaped an important part of her identity.
