They met in 2004 and perfectly complement one another. In 2008, they decided to put into practice their long-standing desire to open their own design studio. FRST tells stories drawn from the duo's imagination, built on shared experiences. The projects are their subjects. Their drawings assert their respective individualities. These are creations imbued with distinct personalities. Together they express the studio's guiding philosophy. This global, coherent artistic approach is defined by a style which strives to be sober and elegant. Lightness, harmony and comfort can be identified in its form and movement. FRST's artistic pursuits are just as visual as they are poetic.
