Thibault Desombre

Thibault Desombre


Thibault Desombre trained initially as a cabinet-maker before becoming a member of the Compagnons du Tour de France. He then embarked on a career as a designer, enrolling in ENSAD (the Ecole Nationale Supérieure des Arts Décoratifs) in Paris. After graduating, he created his first pieces at the P. Parent agency in 1983 where he designed the Diazo chair. In 1986 he joined Grange. There he designed the Shaker’s collection which was awarded the grand prize at the Salon du Meuble.

Producers such as Ligne Roset and Cinna were his next port of call. He worked on table accessory projects designing Bora carafes and Shama cutlery for Ligne Roset and also lighting, with the Mama lamp for Ligne Roset and Eole for Cinna.  His work for brands such as Pleyel (pianos) and Laguiole reflected his eclectic edge. His designs were a great success and he has won many prizes (Via label, Etoile du Design, Excellence Award from Marie-Claire Maison…).

Thibault Desombre’s experience with the Compagnons du Tour de France accentuated and focused his vision of design. Today, he expresses his mastery of all things beautiful through a conciliation of utility and poetry. He imagines and creates objects and furniture with uncluttered lines, full of warmth and narrative.
