Lives and works in Paris, France

Trained at the Boulle and Estienne schools of fine and applied arts in Paris, Martin Szekely initially came to public attention in 1982 with his first collection of furniture, Pi. Over the years, his designs have mostly fallen into two categories: on the one hand are the limited-edition pieces of furniture and objects, regularly exhibited; on the other are the designs and products, arising from industrial partnerships and public commissions.
