Embrace the change and honor the matter
Paul Youenn is a concept-shaper. Fascinated by vibrations, rituals and gestures, he plays with scale to make the invisible tangible by combining high technology and craftsmanship.
Eliott Vallin is a textile artist-designer. He instinctively builds his work on the structure of the body by creating a poetic and raw atmosphere.
They both graduated from the Design Academy Eindhoven.
Together they founded Adaptism, a studio that oscillates between contemporary art, industrial design and fashion.
The name "Adaptism" captures their philosophy: embrace change and honor the matter. A philosophy that guides their method of research, design and production of their projects.
They focus first on materials, then on their cultural heritages, the latest production methods and their technical potentials to create adaptive pieces.
