For A+A Cooren, design is a matter of context, sharing, and embracing the present
20th November 2023
Can design demand harmony with nature? Can it also assign values through cognisant emotions?
With a striking confluence of pragmatism and understated visuals, the poetic and multidisciplinary design beings of A+A Cooren Design Studio hold the attention and admiration of many. Founded in 1999 by French-Japanese designer duo Aki and Arnaud Cooren, the Paris-based practice is on a quest to ‘question harmony’ vis-à-vis poignant designs that border on the dreamy, exercising within the realms of lighting design, products, furniture, scenographies, as well as interiors. Their creations, often and effortlessly serene, impart meanings internal to them, which might not be necessarily or immediately conveyed through their mien, providing them with sensuality and sensory mystique.
