Samy Rio

Samy Rio studied cabinetmaking for four years before enrolling at ENSCI Les Ateliers in Paris, graduating in October 2014, with a research project on industrial applications for bamboo poles. In July 2015, he was awarded the Grand Prize Design Parade 10 at the Villa Noailles for this very project and he ended up on a residency at the NTCRI in Taiwan, where he continued his research on bamboo together with local master craftsmen. Through his various experiments with materials, he explores the interactions between know how and industry, traditions and new techniques, in order to question not only materials, but also the way we produce objects.
