architect, industrial designer, scenographer, teacher

Stéphane Maupin is a qualified architect (DPLG) and graduated from the UPMC,currently teaching at the Ecole Supérieure d’Architecture de Paris Val de Seine.

After taking a Master of Architecture degree at SCI-Arc Los Angeles, he set up in Japan on a Villa Médicis Hors les murs scholarship. When he came back to France he did a 3 year stint for Philippe Starck.

He left that job to design ‘la maison des métamorphoses’ for the millennium festivities in the year 2000, after which he spent a year in Brazil setting up the ’Parade’ exhibition at the Oca, a museum designed by Oscar Niemeyer.

In 2003 he set up an office with his colleague Nicolas Hugon. They designed the TOKYOEAT restaurant at the Palais de Tokyo in Paris, and with Pascal Cribier made a submission in the Pompidou Centre Metz competition. Their project came in second behind that of the accursed triumvirate led by the famous Japanese architect Shigeru Ban.

Their office works in a wide range of fields: design, scenography, town planning (bathtub with candles for Lafayette Maison, waste receptacle for City of Paris, scenography for Fondation Cartier), including offbeat and exceptional projects:
- Façade envelope for the île Seguin,
- Installation of the inaugural exhibition « D’un regard, l’Autre » at the Musée du Quai Branly opening
- Competition for the Centre des Archives Nationales at Pierrefite
- Competition for the Carreau des Halles in Paris
