After having tackled the fine arts and architecture in the 80s, Christophe decides to express himself in the design.
A graduate of ESDI (Ecole Supérieure de Design Industriel Paris), he moved in 1990 to create furniture and intervenes on various industrial projects.
Attentive to detail, he maintains a constant dialogue between user observation, comfort and intuitive to design his products.
In the cycle department of Decathlon, Christophe will define the design of some landmark creations such as Hop, Hoprider and the famous B’twin bikes.
He works as a teacher in several schools of design, engineering, management and occasionally delivers conferences in France or India.
Convinced that design can improve the lives of people on a daily basis, he becomes the Premier Design Manager of the Saint Etienne conurbation (Creative City of Unesco, pioneer in France for the integration of design in its public and economic policy).
Above all guided by the search for a timeless simplicity and with the ambition to develop innovative products and services in the field of DIY, he integrates Kingfisher to deposit his creative dough until 2016.
Christophe François tries to invent new evidence. Today, it evolves in the sincere desire to undertake in accordance with its values.
