Paul Coudamy is a French architect whose work is a contemporary mash up of inventiveness supplied by today’s technologies and materials. Paul’s ethos is to mix new technologies while diverting from their original use. His latest masterpiece, aptly named Random Resurrection, is a table and chairs made up of furniture found on eBay.

Paul’s designs are not only about making or re-purposing things to create new ones but to question and disrupt the original form of an object. His work becomes an architectural assemblage or a three dimensional functioning collage. His design philosophy is one worth mentioning, “It is through the diversion in the use of new means of communication and the reinterpretation of interactive and reactive procedures that the projects gain a critical status.”

Previous works include a cardboard office interior designed for a Parisian ad agency as well as a set of Bear Caves created by using wood waste pieces collected in dumpsters, sidewalks and wastelands.
