Claire Michel, the designer behind Sprayfun, creates poetic objects and garments for everyday, by hand in her studio. Both her work and technique are inspired by nature and ethnic groups, as well as Indigenous and street art. Through her inspiration and world, she creates an imaginary, colourful tribe that embodies each of her works.

 

Based in Saint-Malo, France, Sprayfun is dedicated to working locally, supporting artisans through collaboration and sourcing materials from the region.

Claire lives a “zero-waste” lifestyle and incorporates these ideals into her studio. Designing for home, body and mind, her work embraces her ethic.

 

Claire finished her studies at the design school, Duperré, in Paris in 2007. She then moved to Antwerp to study under Walter Van Bierendonck at The Royal Fashion Academy of Fine Arts where she graduated in 2011.

During her studies there, Claire mastered the technique which inspired Sprayfun and gave it it’s name, using a spray gun to airbrush paint on paper, wood and fabric.

Launched in 2011, Sprayfun is a multi-disciplinary studio focusing on Art, Fashion, Textiles & Decor.

“Her work is fluid, oversized and above all organic. With each garment being impeccably made by Claire’s eco-conscious hand. Perhaps the biggest shock of all is that she has achieved all this through the technique of spraying paint, a notoriously chemical based process that she has ecologically reinvented. Sprayfun is a label with countless paradoxes and boundless amounts of color.”
