Born in France, Sam Baron has a degree in Design from the Fine Arts School of Saint-Étienne and a post-graduate degree from the National Decorative Arts School of Paris. Baron loves to reinterpret traditional methods of construction, raising questions about the utility of today’s material productions.
He creates products, exhibition and interior design projects, giving life to cross-over works mixing art and design. He is an independent designer and a consultant for international companies such as Dior Maison, La Redoute, Vista Alegre and the French liquor brand Hennessy. He has been a consultant as Design director for Fabrica, the international communication research center based in Italy, during a decade. In 2009 Baron received the «Grand Prix de la Création de la Ville de Paris» in the design category and in 2010 Philippe Starck selected him as one of the ten important designers of the next decade. Recently Sam has been awarded with the French Design Award prize, which recognises French designers whose work is known at global level.
Sam Baron currently lives and works between Portugal and France.
