Michel Millot is an established French designer backed by years of experience. As a student, he read industrial design at the famous Ulm school, the Hochschule für Gestaltung in Germany. This prepared him for an illustrious career in industrial design.
His career milestones include heading the design department of the Industrial Creation Centre at the acclaimed Centre Georges Pompidou in Paris.
Millot’s main interests are design management, analysis and design methods. To impart his extensive knowledge of industrial design, he became an academic. He was a professor at Ecole Nationale Superieure des Arts Decoratifs (ENSAD) in Paris. In addition, he taught at the University of Montreal in Canada and the Central Academy of Arts and Design in Beijing.
As both a teacher and a practitioner, his philosophy is to introduce a practical aspect to design via the collaboration among designers, engineers and marketing people.
Millot’s respect for marketing objectives and his experience in creating innovative solutions for over 2,000 products (mainly household equipment) are reasons why Odette is proud to call him our head designer.
