Born in 1987 in Brussels, Belgium, Arturo Erbsman is a French designer whose works reflect different points of intersection between manufactured objects and the four elements of nature. He focuses on showing the delicacy of distinct aspects of water like ice, snow, stalactites, condensation and vapor in his handmade lighting objects.         He derives his source of inspiration from his faraway travels and from closely observing natural phenomena of everyday life. He graduated from Ecole Nationale Supérieure des Arts Decoratifs - ENSAD in 2012 and is currently enrolled at their post-graduate research faculty. He is also a professor of technology and materials at Ecole Com'Art in Paris.
