FX BallÃ©ry was born in 1977 in the French Jura. After originally pursuing a degree in science, he chose to go to the ESAD of Reims in 1996 to become a product designer. He soon won the "ComitÃ© Colbert Jeunes Talents Award" by designing a bag for Chanel. And shortly after, he discovered the Royal College of Art while working at Ron Arads studio in London.
In 2000, having his degree in hand, he moved to England to do a master class in product design at the RCA. During his two years there, he enhanced his vision and practice of design by comparing his ideas with other students from all around the world. He won for the second time the "ComitÃ© Colbert Jeunes Talents Award" when he created a picnic set for HermÃ¨s and furthered his portfolio with clients and sponsors such as BPI, Yves Saint Laurent BeautÃ© and Ricard. Returning to Paris, he founded his studio FX BallÃ©ry Design which provides services from product design to furniture design, packaging, merchandising and industrial design.
