Léa Mestres is a young French designer born in Paris in 1992.
After a few years in Eindhoven, the Netherlands, she sets up her studio in Paris.
"Any shape, any material: and we'll see afterwards"

In Lea's work, line drawing gives the imagination a field of unlimited possibilities: it is an incomplete sketch, without real information : no scale, color, material, or even perspective. It's a liberating moment: the object evolves throughout the manufacturing process. An abstract line gives a general image, its interpretation is specific to each. It is this two-dimensional form that will have to materialize and become an instinctive and personal object.

During this modeling process, texture, finish, or color appear. At this moment, drawing and volume separate to give life to functional sculptures.
