environmental designer, interior architect, industrial designer, scenographer

Adrien Gardère began his career in 2000, articulating his activity around three axes: furniture & lighting design, museography and exhibition scenography, and interior architecture. He works on the international circuit, where his experiences and personal preferences have led him into lasting relationships with institutions in major cities, both in the West and in the East. His assignments are more in the way of cooperation projects that adapt to local demands as much as world-wide strategies: in Egypt (Islamic Art Museum, Egyptian National Museum, Museum of Historic Cairo), in the US (Kennedy Center for Performing Arts, Washington DC), in India (National Institute of Design, Ahmedabad), in Indonesia (French cultural centre, Surabaya), in Portugal (Design Museum, Centro do Belem, Lisbon), in France (Musée du Louvre, Musée des Arts décoratifs, Cité nationale de l’Architecture et du Patrimoine, Paris). Constantly crossing borders, he is able to set up constructive dialogue between traditional savoir-faire and new functions, innovation and comfort, understanding and emotion, scientific expertise and educational goals. His creations always result from the analysis of contemporary user protocols and cultural contexts, and from the pertinence of using specific production tools, new materials and ingenious mechanisms - qualities that are sought after by makers like Artemide, Ligne Roset, Perimeter Editions, Krios Italia and Saazs.
