environmental designer, interior architect

Rémi Belair and Claude Lecante met up in 1999 at the Ecole Boulle. In spite of their divergent backgrounds, since one had affinities with the art trades, the other with industrial design, they began to collaborate on design projects. The mix, which progressed amidst sleepless nights, beans and ravioli, strong coffee and constant bickering, only served to strengthen their desire to work together.

In the year 2000, subsequent to their two diploma projects, they decided to set up a practice. The result - deCUB – is an assemblage of their shared moments working in furniture design. Working on the exchange between the piece of furniture and its environment, shifting, changing, transforming, transposing... telling a story that the user can appropriate.

In 2003, Rémi quit deCUB for other occupations, Claude Lecante carried on designing new projects, some in collaboration with graphic artists, scenographers, makers or artisans, for objects related to habitat.

For 6 years, Claude Lecante had worked in parallel with Rémy Dognin, project head for signage, scenography and interior architecture for clients like Veolia Environnement, the Museum National d’Histoire Naturelle, Aéroports de Paris, JLO Prod, etc.

Since 2006, Claude Lecante is an independent associate of deCUB, creating his projects to commissions.
