From her architecture to interior and product design, Crasset innovatively combines  form with function.

She considers the dynamics of domestic life in her product design, and the need for hospitality and domesticated technology in the home.

For the sake of pet pigeons, Matali Crasset reconsiders the notion of the nest. She designs this micro-architectured environment for the improved experience of pet and owner alike.

She speaks on having designed a series of innovative experiential environments that include confinements devised entirely out of audio speakers and cubicles for artificial light absorption. Crasset questions the boundaries of beneficial, human environments with these designs.
