Trained in philosophy and a graduate of the ENSCI (Design Institute in Paris), Marie-Aurore Stiker-Metral received financial assistance from the VIA in 2007 to develop her revolutionary chair, "La Pliée", made from one piece of cut and bent sheet steel, sold by Ligne Roset.
Her design institute project, supervised by Erwan Bouroullec, combined cut-out wooden structures and fabric surfaces and won the Audi Talent Awards in 2010. Marie-Aurore also participated in the creation of displays within the future Louvre Museum of Abu Dhabi (Agence nc).
Winner of the “Visa for Osaka” prize from the city of Paris, Marie-Aurore has lived in Japan from April to September 2012 to study the manufacturing of samurai armour and to meet Japanese craftsmen.
The feather clock created for L’Atelier d’Exercices is the quintessential example of her design work: quasi-monastic structural simplicity with artisanal and poetic detail.
