Haos is a Paris-based design studio founded by Sophie Gelinet and Cedric Gepner in 2017. Sophie and Cedric mainly use wood, bronze and ceramics, which they articulate with their dual interest in contemporary design and the know-how of traditional craftsmanship. The couple work primarily with French artisans who often have decades of experience working with the same material. It’s a process rooted in all things tangible and permanent, one whose outcome can only and inevitably be an object that’s been stripped down to its most essential form. The two of them handle everything, from the research and first sketches to overseeing the manufacturing process.
