Marie Bastide has followed a multidisciplinary course at Paris’ Arts Décoratifs and at Helsinki’s UIAH/TAIK, as a textile designer.
Her first free-lance jobs for design offices stimulated her creativity and desire for innovation.
During her 3 years working for Tai Ping, she is initiated to technicality. There, she cultivates the art of detail and discovers the subtle work of creative interpretation, or how to give substance to renowned clients’ dreams, while still respecting their technical constraints.
This experience enables her to acquire a rare craftsmanship, and to practice it in a confidential domain, the one of « exceptional carpets ».
She sharpens her know-how next to great names of decoration and design, such as the Starck agency, Patricia Urquiola, India Mahdavi, and Alberto Pinto.
Bruno Borrione, whom she encounters while redeveloping the Maison Pic, suggests her to join his projects by drawing and insuring the whole production of carpets.
Now self-employed, Marie works with numerous interior designers, including Philippe Starck.
Each projects reveal themselves as opportunities to create carpets which are imprinted with the history of places, of people, while always adding a contemporary vibration to them.
Then, the carpet becomes an object of desire, always inclined to satisfy a will for novelty. It is the surprise that awakens the place, the one that animates itself within the spirit of its creator, before being mastered by the one who will have the privilege to possess it.
