David Énon is a freelance designer, graduated from the ENSCI (École Nationale Supérieure de Création Industrielle – Paris). He lives and works in Paris. He navigates between commissioned projects, research and teaching. His works are published by the Tools Gallery in Paris and the MICA Gallery in Rennes. His work is part of the FNAC collection (Fonds national d’art contemporain, 2011). His projects question the production modes of material form in our environment. He is currently working on the production of artificial reef furniture, for which he received a research grant from the Cnap (centre national des arts plastiques). He teaches at the Esad-Talm – Angers France.

His practice consists of:
– designing effortlessly and costlessly, letting things exist, sometimes against the tide.
– drawing a lot in order to draw as little as possible.
– moving, replaying, arranging, searching there where you think you won’t find anything.
