Since 2008, Guillaume Sasseville has been engaged in a search for the common: that point of resonance where materials, objects, spaces, and uses strike a chord. His work, imbued with a profound respect for the artisan’s craft, harnesses the sensuous potential of industrial processes. The resulting designs have extremely refined archetypal forms, tinged with subtle humour, where the complexity of processes fades into the background to disclose a precious experience.
Guillaume Sasseville’s designs have been published in Azure, Cent, Icon and Interiors, and presented in Montreal, New York, Paris, and Milan. He holds a Master of Science in Design and Luxury Management from ÉCAL (École cantonale d’art de Lausanne, 2011), and a BA in Environmental Design from UQAM (Université du Québec à Montréal, 2007). Before founding Studio SSSVLL, Sasseville worked for almost a decade in architecture, notably with Saucier+Perrotte. In 2011, the City of Montreal awarded him the Phyllis-Lambert Design Grant for his project, Common glass.
