Artist and designer Inga Sempé is a new entry to the Mutina team. She designed the Tratti collection in 2014.
Inga Sempé was born in Paris into a family of artists. Although never linked to design, the importance of drawing in her family environment was certainly a factor in the way her design approach now differs from other French designers. Since graduating from the ENSCI Atelier (Ecole Nationale Supérieure de Création Industrielle – Paris) in 1993, she has worked in various design and interior architecture studios. In 2000 she opened her first studio in Paris where she lives. Sempé spent 2000 – 2001 at the Villa Medici (Academie de France) in Rome, working on her first personal designs which were then produced by Edra and Cappellini. In 2003, she received the Paris Grand Prize of Creation for design and had a solo show at the Musée des Arts Décoratifs. The designer collaborates with French brand Ligne Roset and international companies such as LucePlan, Wästberg, Moustache, Alessi, Almedahls, Hay, Svenkst Tenn and Cassina.
