Cradled by a childhood sensitive to culture and creativity, Hervé  Winkler and Frédéric Rochette are two French designers, whose association gave birth to RoWin' atelier in 2011.
As teenagers, they decided to study architecture at the Val de Seine School of Architecture, combined with interior architecture/design for Hervé and at the Paris la Villette School of Architecture for Frédéric.
In parallel to the architectural projects, RoWin' atelier develops furniture pieces in limited series.

Their taste and knowledge of architecture, but also of the decorative arts, painting and sculpture of the 20th and 21st centuries are the sources of inspiration for their work. Very attached to exceptional materials, Hervé  and Frédéric work in collaboration with craftsmen to promote artisanal know-how.
One line runs through the practice of the two partners, a clear and recognisable line, the elegance of contrasting materials in simple and balanced forms. The material is both a silhouette and a volume in space.
These two personalities come together to create pieces with a demand for different finishes and different degrees of reading. Rhythm, presence, visibility and virtuosity characterise their sculptural works.
