Inventors and Designers
Most Mastrad products start life in the heads of our in-house designers and inventors. Everyone lends a hand (and contributes their influences) in the creation of our beautiful, useful objects. Discover the minds who shape the products you love.
For the founder and President of Mastrad, cooking has always been a vocation. It was the time he spent in the restaurant business that gave him the idea that would lead to Mastrad, in 1994: the Deos steel soap. Ever since then, he has continued to apply his abundant creative talents to culinary innovation; for example, in his work with Luka to create the silicone oven mitt. Mathieu is responsible for most of Mastrad's products, and relies on the company's designers to bring his creations to life.
Lucas Bignon has been with Mastrad since its earliest days. He has two passions: tableware, and automotive design. No doubt it was all that time spent ogling chrome that inspired him to design the shiny curves of the Deos soap, but he has also been responsible for many other notable creations, such as our range of Elios peelers and our silicone papillote minute cookers. This talented and much-decorated designer has undoubtedly helped transform utensils into useful works of art.
The P’tite Gourde, the Deco-Pocket icing pouch, the Mini Pies & Raviolis kit... These gourmet utensils, overflowing with joie de vivre, stem from the imagination of Marie Buet. Inspired by her travels and driven by a boundless curiosity, this Jill-of-all-trades loves to combine form and function in her creations for young and old alike, brimming with freshness.
After his studies in Maths and Physics, Marc Venot turned next to industrial design to express his elegant creativity. Influenced by many years working for prestigious luxury brands, he designs objects and products in which elegance and functionality go hand in hand. He designed our Balancia range, as well as the Express kitchen tongs and the Universal Mixer.
Anne Tanquy has a thirst for knowledge. She is one of those creators who draws inspiration from absolutely everything around them, from music to her beloved sea. She also has an agile, ingenious mind, with the gift of being able to bend the constraints of her materials to the fluid, gentle lines she designs. We have her to thank for the Magma plate warmer, the ClearPull corkscrew, our macaron baking sheets… and many others.
Creative, ingenious, functional: Bérangère Suquet's design philosophy in three words. Her observant mind, in its perpetual quest for discovery and novelty, draws much of its inspiration from her years spent in India. If you use our vegetable cutter, muddler/straws or egg shapers, then you'll be interested to learn that they started life on “Berie”'s drawing board.
