BIOGRAPHY

Born in Paris suburbs, Julien Carretero studied industrial design consecutively in France and in England before attending the Contextual Design MA at the Design Academy Eindhoven. In parallel of his studies in the Netherlands Julien worked for designer Maarten Baas. After his graduation in 2007 he founded Studio Julien Carretero, which moved to Brussels in 2012.

Studio Julien Carretero is a multidisciplinary practice involved in the design of objects, furniture, lighting, processes, interiors, workshops and exhibitions. In an attempt to question contemporary production methods it often focusses on the crossover between craftsmanship and industry, through either the transformation of artisanal techniques into serial production processes or the use of heavy industrial facilities as simple mediums.

Julien’s work was awarded by the Villa Noailles Design Parade festival in Hyeres and is part of the collection of the Fonds National d’Art Contemporain (F) and the MUDAM Luxembourg.

His projects have been internationally exhibited in renowned venues and events such as the Triennale di Milano, Design Miami/ Basel, the Tokyo 21_21 Design Sight Museum, the New York Museum of Art and Design, the Saatchi gallery and the Cologne Museum for Applied Arts. Julien has also been teaching, lecturing and giving workshops in Germany, Italy, Korea, the Netherlands, Belgium, France and his work has been featured in many major design books and publications worldwide.

In 2014, he co-founded OBJECTION — together with fellow designer Charlotte Dumoncel d’Argence — both an online and on-site platform dedicated to the culture of contemporary design in its broadest understanding.
