Le BARON du Design

 Sam Baron, the designer behind a wonder of things, has an amazing resume, and he is still so young. (to me at least, he's born in 1976) . This french creature graduated from Ecole des Beaux Arts de Saint Etienne with a degree in Design, in 1999 following that he received a post-graduate degree in Design from Ecole Nationale Superieure des Arts Decoratifs de Paris and at the Ecole des Beaux Arts de Saint Etienne in 2001.
 He won the Prize for Best Installation in Tokyo with an exhibition entitled Rendez-Vous.  He then spent a year part of the design department of Fabrica.   He has a collection of ceramic plates exhibited at the Cooper Hewitt Museum of New York and is sold worldwide by Bosa called “slices of Design” . 
Sam Baron's list of clients include Louis Vuitton, L’Oreal Group, Sephora, Musee des Arts Decoratifs de Paris, Renault, De Beers London, Vista Alegre/Atlantis Portugal, Baccarat, Vitra, Maxalto and Christofle. 
(A ya yaay! what a lovely list!)
 In 2007 he won Grand Prix de la Creation de La Ville de Paris, and the Createur de l’Annee in 2010 promoted by Maison et Objets.
 The first two images are a collection of his latest work for Bosa.
I truely admire such talent.
Sooo much more to see on his site
