Emily Marant is an art and design consultant. She has spent the last ten years developing her expertise by building bridges between creative industries. Founder of Studio Marant and co-founder of French Cliché, Emily navigates from emerging talents to established businesses, brining ideas to a tangible reality.
Emily developed this fine balance during her early working years: while studying arts in England or the fashion business in Paris. She did her internships in museums or at the production and the image departments of luxury brands. Part of her first work experiences was to launch an art center in the south of France and to structure retail and product strategies for a number of magazines for a startup.
Studio Marant was launched in 2015 as an echo system designed to enable clients to create singular and embodied projects by collaborating with artists and designers.
Always seeking for the upcoming talents, we nourish strong ties with them by following their careers. This allows us to understand the arts world and match creatives and projects.
From curation to production, from consulting to directing, we bring tailored solutions.
Since its beginnings the Studio has works with institutions, brands and private entities to shape ephemeral or long-lasting projects (Palais de Tokyo, Sonia Rykiel, Athr Gallery, Bompard, MAMO Art Center, The Kooples…).
Founded in 2019 with Hugo Matha, French Cliché is a furniture and objects editor at the frontier of art and design.
“We guide artists in transforming their art into collectible design pieces by collaborating with qualified artisans.”
Driven by the idea of supporting a new generation of talents, the duo select emerging artists and designers with strong artistic identities.
French Cliché sources traditional craft-men to collaborate with the artists and introduce their high quality knowledge to each project.
Thought as a nomadic gallery, French Cliché showcases its collections through art and design fairs, collaborations with high end retailers and their Parisian showroom.
