Antoine Audiau and Manuel Warosz met at art school in Paris. When they left it was as a professional pair, under the name of Antoine + Manuel, representing the sum of two ways of working. Each of them explores his favourite fields and methods of working.
They combine hand drawing and computer illustration with photography and typographical design. The result, although varied, has an evident unity and a unique graphic style. The Decorative Arts Museum in Paris is putting on a retrospective exhibition of their work in 2009, including commissions for Yale University, Christian Lacroix, Sèvres, Galleries Lafayette and Coca-Cola. The cabinet they have designed for BD is their first work in the world of furniture.
