With a fascination for industrial standards, Julien Renault is inspired by the beauty found in everyday objects and the traces of manufacturing processes. Based in Brussels, he develops furniture and objects for brands such as Hem, Lapeyre, Cruso and Kewlox. Additionally, his studio engages in works of creative direction and photography for various design brands and designers. His sensibility has been moulded through his experiences. Julien trained as an industrial designer in ESAD Design & Art School. He worked at Studio Bouroullec in Paris after obtaining his Master in Product Design at ECAL in Lausanne (2009). Soon after, he moved to Brussels to set up his studio.
Among contemporary furniture manufacturers, Mattiazzi, the family owned producer of wooden furniture in Udine, Italy, is uncommon. While many producers in that region rely on third party factories and work in diverse materials, Mattiazzi operates with their own machines and hands, and has developed a healthy obsession for woodworking. Since 1978, when brothers Nevio and Fabiano Mattiazzi founded the company, Mattiazzi has steadily cultivated its local manufacturing culture. Their network of wood shops is diverse enough to support any manufacturing process the brand may need. Every shop has its own focus, from milling to lacquering, and a particular process always belongs to a specific part of town. But don’t let the neighborhood approach confuse you: Mattiazzi is no backyard shop. Their highly specialized craftsmen operate the most sophisticated machinery available to the wood industry. An eight-axis CNC milling machine allows wood to take the complex shapes associated with injection-molded plastic. Operating such a machine is an art and Mattiazzi disproves the modern myth that mechanized manufacturing is not a craft.
