Inga Sempé is a French designer born in Paris in 1968 whose work is recognized by its light touch, its playful and poetic side. Daughter of the famous designer of the same name and of Mette Ivers, an illustrator of Danish origin who worked on the "Jaime Lire" series, Inga Sempé turned to creation at a very young age.
After studying design at the National School of Industrial Creation, Inga Sempé began her career working with the team of Australian designer Marc Newson (Hermés, Vuitton, Montblanc). Between 1997 and 1999, she was part of the teams of the famous designer Andrée Putman's agency. She then became a resident of the Villa Medici for a year, then began a collaboration with Cappellini.
Italian architecture and art of paper then became a formidable source of inspiration for the artist, who subsequently sought to work with flutes and folds, as can be seen in some of her iconic creations (the paper lamp that made her reputation at Cappellini, the MATIN collection of Hay). She then founded her agency in Paris, and received the Grand Prix du design from the city of Paris in 2002. The following year, the Decorative Arts Museum devoted an exhibition to her. She received the German Red Dot Design Award in 2007 and in 2012 she was awarded the title of designer of the year in Stockholm.
Today, Inga Sempé works with many brands including Hay, Ligne Roset and Baccarat. Some of her creations are included in the permanent collections of the Centre Pompidou, the National Museum in Stockholm, and the Musée des Arts décoratifs in Paris.
