Former student of “ENSCI Les Ateliers“ (French national school for advanced studies in design), Sylvie Amar opens her design studio in 1997. Very quickly, her sensitivity for the culinary world brings about her first creation, her famous cooking hammer, and a first prestigious collaboration with Pierre Gagnaire. Two founding acts that she has since never stopped to explore and to deepen: the search for functionality supporting creativity and the Chefs’ images. Strong from her expertise in the world of gastronomy, Sylvie Amar has made design a global support tool, from the creation of objects to the planning of spaces; a support she now extends to consulting in brand identity and strategy. Having partnered with the most famous suppliers (Pillivuyt, Peugeot PSP, Matfer, Arc International…), the largest hotel and restaurant groups (Accor, Louvre Hotels …), the biggest names of the agri-food industry (Nestlé, Cailler, CCDessert, Mer’Alliance, Nespresso…) as well as the greatest Chefs (Olivier Roellinger, Jean-Michel Lorain, Jean-François Foucher…), she is now in demand internationally, especially by Nousaku, the renown traditional Japanese foundry, that has asked her to create its “arts de la table“ (art of tableware) collection.
