François Azambourg has won much recognition over the years: lauréat de la villa Médicis hors les murs (2003), Grand Prix du Design de Paris (2004), lauréat du concours Top Plastique (3 times), and lauréat du concours du musée des arts décoratifs. His work links both the techniques and the art within the applied arts.

In 1994, having been awarded the lauréat du concours du CTBA, he began to create new materials for Hermès.

His work was shown at the VIA between 1999 and 2003: a fireside chair in wood and foam, the `Pack' chair, a lamp in woven optical fibres, a light in double-layer textile, and the `very nice' chair, which was inspired by the little balsa-wood chairs of his childhood.
