Lionel DoyenDesigner of Kumo, San and Solid
Beyond the aesthetics
With a practical understanding of product usability and an eye for fine details, Lionel Doyen (1978) takes a slightly different approach to design and development. Specialised in service, product and industrial design, the French designer aims to create on a more personal and experimental level, always keeping the customer’s experience in mind. His style can best be described as innovative and timeless, as he consistently looks beyond mere aesthetic appeal. He designed the Kumo, San & Solid collections for Manutti, blending design with everyday comfort. In 2013, he launched his own design studio.
