Inspired by craftsmanship and techniques, Frenchman Thomas Morineau Barthélemy expresses his creativity through cross-disciplines: design and architecture. In both, he explores the notions of disappearance and resilience to connect with his homeland with sensitivity.
The architect and designer Thomas Morineau Barthélemy studied at the ENSA Paris-Malaquais and then trained for five years in architecture agencies in Paris, Geneva and Tokyo. During this period, he learned the poetry and rigor inherent in the material.
In 2022, he was named a finalist at the 6th edition of the Design Parade Toulon for his installation La Taulo e l'Oustau, La cuisine rêvée de Frédéric Mistral. Spatial reading of texts by Frédéric Mistral (1830-1914), poet, writer and fervent defender of the right of Provençal people to express themselves in their own language, it stages Provençal cuisine and good food, which he considered to be one of the most precious heritage of Provence.
Drawing on Mistralian references and Provençal terms, La Taulo e l'Oustau is a timeless space in which time stretches out, mixing sobriety and frugality, regional materials and traditional craftsmanship.
Driven by this project, he founded the same year Geste-s, his creative agency in which he mixes architecture, scenography and design.
