Samuel was honored in 2013 by the Grand Prix of Creation of Paris City for all his creations, as well as for his creative approach. He also received various international awards, including 3 Red Dot Design Awards and a German Design Award.
In his works, he attaches particular interest to promote the know-hows, the beautiful workmanship, and the place of the human being in the project, whether it be with a craft structure or a company.
Above all, Samuel sees creation as an open-plan ensemble and, thus, works in different fields of design such as furniture, industrial design, street furniture, lighting, spaces, scenography, artistic direction for a company, limited edition pieces. He also collaborates with architects on more specific projects.
The expression of his creations tends towards a pure line, contemporary, elegant, and with a graphic effect sought.
