Margaux Keller is product designer, furniture designer, and interior designer.

She worked thereafter on the benches of the agency of Philippe Starck, Eugeni alongside Quittlet.Through the objects that she creates, Margaux Keller seeks surprise through her designs by playing with daily codes and analyzing different social attitudes and habits. "Elegance", "offset", and "poetic" are the three key words to describe her style of design. She particularly appreciates working in collaboration with artisans, experts in raw materials, cabinet makers, potters and glassmakers, among others.In 2011, she was chosen to be part of the design team Fabrica, Communication Research Centre of Benetton Group. She stayed there a year, under the artistic direction of Sam Baron, drawing pieces for galleries, museums, and the Benetton brand.

Margaux Keller has come a long way since age 13, redecorating her room by arranging furniture and “pinning stuff on the walls.” She decided then, as a teenager growing up in Geneva, Switzerland, to attend design school in Paris. After she finished two design degrees, she found herself under the tutelage of Eugeni Quittlet during a “crazy” internship in Philippe Starck’s atelier. Since striking out on her own, she’s collaborated with high-design brands and everyday retailers alike, creating pieces like her Soupir tabletop mirror and Fanfan, a cork children’s toy. Now she’s making a line of home goods for SIA, under the direction of designer Jean-Marc Gady, as well as pieces for Roche Bobois.
