Elisabeth Vidal

Native of Montpellier, graduated of Ecole Supérieure de Design Industriel in Paris, I joined the Domus Academy Master Course from Milan in 1990. Master accomplished, I worked there as teaching assistant and in 1993, I began to exercise my profession of designer at TNO Innovation for Life in Delft, Netherlands, on projects related to agriculture.
Back in Milan in 1994, I worked with two agencies: Susani & Trimarchi, designing tableware (Serafino Zani) and Isao Hosoe Design, areas of workspace (project Strafor Steelcase) and travelspace (overnight train SNCF, Fiat concept car).1998 is the year of the creation of my own agency specialized in designing objects and its commercial context, packaging, displays, sales environnement and signage.
2010 has been a pivotal year, after twenty years in Italy, I set my business in Montpellier. Rich of my collaborations within design for industrial production, my work turns more to crafts entreprises through actions oriented towards valorisation of territorial know-how such as leather in Millau or wood cabinet companies in Midi-Pyrenees.
Besides my creative activity I conduct educational workshops in various training centers.Among my clients: Guzzini, Rosenthal, Egizia, Danese Milano, Casa Bugatti (tableware), Sharp, Siris, Homs (electric appliances), Kidsonroof, Fisherprice, Lego, Fila (Child universe), Cedit, Alessi/Steuler (ceramic coverings), Escudama (leather goods).
In education, IED (Istituto Europeo di Design), University of Applied Arts in Nîmes, Packaging design IUT of Castres, some technical or artistic high schools, and the Master in Strategic Design courses Poli .design (Politecnico of Milan Consortium) in collaboration with Panasonic, Kidsonroof and Barilla.
