Sébastien Pittet

The “home” of today and tomorrow must be designed to be in harmony with the planet and its inhabitants, built by people working conscientiously and with concern for defining the best solutions for each scenario. It is essential to have a holistic vision of construction, of life! The subject is so complex, the solutions interconnected and variable from one situation to another that one can only make a multi-​criteria choice. But what are these criteria?

To take action, it is essential to detach yourself from the catalogue of industrial products and know the possibilities and the techniques that can be used. There are only three parameters left to be used intelligently, one influencing the others but cannot be ruled out: materials, shapes and colours.

Sébastien Pittet explained the philosophy behind the work of Pittet Artisans and presented their work with regenerative materials.
