Atelier blam is a multidisciplinary practice that operates at the intersection of design, fabrication and architecture. The studio specializes in conception and engineering, as well as manufacturing and precise execution of ergonomic, functional and artistic forms. Their wider body of work extends over multiple scales and programs: from science, engineering and architecture, to artistic interventions and site-specific installations. Being closely involved in how these complex projects are realized, their approach provides a testing ground for methods of production as well as material research.
With a history of innovative work that dates back to 2015, Atelier blam has been committed to developing creative solutions starting from the concept stage through to the production, fostering exchange between craftsmen and designers. Through an ongoing collaboration with Ronan & Erwan Bouroullec and their creative input, the practice has been able to address a broader reflection on functionality, urban design and installation art in today’s environment. The studio, based in Nantes, is led by Aurélien Meyer.
