Studio Yann Gandon is a multi-disciplinary studio working with natural, recycled and waste materials.


Collaborating with individuals and companies of all sizes, our studio focuses on furniture design and research about how to valorize industrial waste, recycled materials and unwanted ressources. 

About Yann Gandon

Yann Gandon is a self-taught designer and woodworker from France who established his design studio in 2020. Originally based in New Zealand, he has since opened his studio in Copenhagen, Denmark.

Prior to delving into the world of design, Yann's professional journey involved a variety of ventures, including in India. At a pivotal moment, he decided to shift his career focus to explore the art of furniture design and making.


Currently enrolled in the entrepreneurship program at the Kobenhavn Kommune Sydhavn Recycling Center. This opportunity allows the studio to develop projects closely with companies and the city, all centered around waste materials.
