Structures was founded in Nantes, France, in 2004 by Jean Francois Michon and shipbuilder Nicolas Pichelin on the insistence of contemporary artists who wished for innovative, technical solutions to their projects. Pichelin’s background in shipbuilding and rigging boats had given him ample skill to apply composite materials such as carbon, glass fiber, flax, and basalt to help French luxury brands and designers make their ideas come to life.
