AMPHISBAENA

Collaboration Julie Maurin & Claire Iseppi

Julie and Claire started their studies together at the Fine art School of Lyon (ENSBA), in France. They eventually evolved in different

ways but remained sensitives to the same approach of art and design. In 2017, they collaborated on their first commun project

called « AMPHISBAENA ». Derived from Greek words « Amphis », « two ways » and « Bainein »,« to go », « amphisbaena » means

« double walker », as a walker who goes in two directions. Julie and Claire have used their own artisanal practices and knowledge,

whilst aiming to find the right balance to combine their two ways of working as a mean to express their vision of accessory design

in a very open way.
