"I do things, and I have lot of things to do..."
Jérôme Aich, born in Paris, spends most of his teenage
years making graffiti. Today he is a product designer
graduated in 2001 from the École Nationale Supérieure
de Création Industrielle (ENSCI/Les Ateliers), where he
obtained a special mention for his degree project concerning
an emergency shelter. The project was carried out together
with the Paris Social SAMU (Medical Urgency Aid Service).
His work involves studying, conceiving and developing
applicable innovations for today's production tools
used by industry and architecture. Without losing his
personal view and at the same time engaged in various
matters, he draws objects conceived to be serially
produced, answering to everyday concerns.
Selected and interviewed in the context of scholarships
and design exhibitions(1), he carries out a personal
research that allows him to reach more contextual
matters, such as the position of the designer in front
of society, production and energy.
His transversal experience in product design and his
interest in process techniques and material collection
have given him the opportunity of working for
scientists, industrials and architecture cabinets(2).
