Sophia Taillet is a designer, graduated from the Ecole Nationale des Arts Décoratifs de Paris.
She focuses on the exploration of matter as a trigger of imagination and apprehends her objects as sculptures in order to be guided by her intuitions and to integrate a large part of her experiences. From steel to glass, her collections seek to reveal the intrinsic properties of the material.
Sophia Taillet has created a series of suspended furniture for the Palais de Tokyo called “Le Temps Suspendu” (Suspended Time), and her Helik light in flexible steel is being exhibited at the Venice Biennale of Architecture in 2018.
Thanks to the Frac d’Auvergne, in 2019 she obtained a 6-month residency in a glass center in Yzeure, France.
