Interior Designer

Paris-based architect Sébastien Segers is highly regarded for melding design disciplines with an encyclopedic range of cultural references. The polymath began his career in 1996 as an assistant to Marc Newson while still a student at the Ecole Nationale Supérieure d’Architecture de Paris-Belleville, and he later continued to work for Newson, as well as architect Jean Nouvel, before opening his eponymous studio in 2003. Today Segers is in high demand as a partner on special projects to luminaries such as Jasper Morrison, Daniel Buren, and Newson. Segers has individually completed architecture and interior projects for discerning residential clients and global luxury brands that include Giorgio Armani and Azzedine Alaïa. Sculptural geometry, intuitive space utilization, and unparalleled craftsmanship characterize every one of his compositions.
