His work is built on a network that encourages human-based relations and includes companies in various fields of expertise. Innovation and global/local connections are at the heart of the studio’s production, which includes collaborations with publishers, furniture manufacturers, small visionary businesses, large firms, art galleries, and schools. Amaury Poudray is currently a teacher and coordinator at La Coursive, a refresher course for foreign students at ESAD Saint-Étienne.
