Born in France in 1971. Earned her architect’s licence in 1995 and moved to Tokyo in 1996. Established “ emmanuelle moureaux architecture + design “ in 2003. Inspired by the Japanese traditional sliding screens, Emmanuelle has been developing the concept of “Shikiri”, a colorful partition series which literally means "dividing space with colors" in English.
Architecture, interior, furniture, products, she designs a wide range of projects, by using her technique of colour scheming and handling colours as space makers. She uses colors as three-dimensional items, like layers, in order to create spaces, and not as an element applied at the end of the design process to decorate the space.
She won the Tokyo Design Tide “Best Installation Award” in 2005, the “Best Store of The Year” in 2007 and 2008, the Honk-Kong Perspective magazine’s special feature “40 under 40” in 2007 , the “CS Design Prize” in 2009.
Associate Professor at Tohoku University of Art & Design since 2008.
