About

Waiting For Ideas is a Paris-based creative studio, founded in 2021 by Jean-Baptiste Anotin. We work on the interface between art and design, creating visually striking and thought-provoking pieces, installations and spaces.

We focus on creating inspiring and innovative furniture, objects, installations, and retail-space projects that push the boundaries, with clients like Kith, Lacoste, Reebok, Shinzo, and even the Mobilier National. We intend to blur borders between the world of Art and Design by collaborating closely with artists like Guillaume Grando, painter Iris Marchand, photographer Mathilde Hiley and set designer Pierre Vaillant. Waiting For Ideas aims to craft a new story behind each project.
