Sophie Dries

Sophie Dries (French, b. 1986) is an architect and designer, with a Degree in Architecture and a Master’s Degree in Design from the Aalto University of Helsinki . After having collaborated with luxury interior Design architecture firms such as Atelier Jean Nouvel, Pierre Yovanovitch or Christian Liaigre, Sophie Dries created in 2014 her studio  based in Paris, and Milan since 2017. She is innovating the design space with her untethered approach to shapes and materials. Dries mixes contemporary items with old techniques and fuses radical lines with smooth design. Between luxury and raw materials, in an experimental quest around traditional materials, Sophie Dries Shares her aesthetic perception by designing essential objects. Combining radical lined and primitive forms, she collaborates with exceptional craftsmen and proposes a bold design that links elements of the present to ancestral techniques. Her style, never driven by a preconceived recipe, is always influenced by the uniqueness of each encounter and the «cosmic essence of the material.» (to quote Brancusi).
