Jean Sebastien Ides (1968) grew up in Paris, France. He never stopped drawing during is childhood and it was kind of natural to go for artistic education. Which he did. Fine arts first, then graphic design and finally industrial design. As soon as he finished school, he started working as a freelancer, always eager to challenge himself with new type of projects.
After almost 2 decades spent living and working in Scandinavia, he's back home for good. He began developing personal projects since the early 90's. Together with his friend, Ivan Duval, they co-founded ATYPYK (1998), a company dedicated to create and self-publish out of the box products. Since then, he has been creating a wide range of objects, some of them massively produced and sold in the most famous museums and concept stores all over the world.
Since the last 15 years, Jean Sébastien has developed personal projects that he has decided to share for the first time through this website. Enjoy !
