Master of Design Kossi Aguessy

Born (in 1977) in Lomé, Togo, Kossi Aguessy wanted to create with his hands. Kossi Aguessy left his natal Togo in 1980 and first went to the United States. He then obtained a B.A. at Central St. Martins in London, left again for Brazil – his mother’s birthplace – and settled in Paris in 1998. Kossi Aguessy passes from one medium to another with ease. His aesthetic is influenced by several different cultures, human values as well as by strong visual references. Aguessy is best known for award winning design for the Stella McCartney perfume bottle.

Renault, Yves Saint Laurent, Cartier, Swarovski, St. Dupont, Branex and art galleries have trusted and searched for his artistic richness to their benefit. The designer has already been head of architectural projects in France, Turkey, and South Africa. He can already count on numerous collaborations, using furniture machinery at a rate of production clearly showing this industrial artist has no limits.

Aguessy describes himself as a “child of Africa, that pays no attention to the boundaries being then the son of a global education with deep multicultural roots.”
