Nicolas Desbons

Born in 1966 - France


Nicolas Desbons was born in 1966, he is an art locksmith and sculptor.

After studing Industrial Design in San Francisco, Nicolas Desbons returned to France where he decided to open his own studio to work with steel. He currently lives and works near Paris.

His work is mainly based on locksmithery (cold working of metal, assembly by welding or screwing) he regularly practices, as well, ironworking (working in the forge, when his creations require it).

Combining different traditional techniques, Nicolas Desbons however seeks to innovate and diverts the codes to create new aesthetic appearances. In order to enrich his pieces, he does not hesitate to combine materials and introduce for example fiberglass, glass, or ceramics and metal.

The artist who calls himself a metal designer works mostly on command.
