Hello! My name is Chanelle and I am a new Interior Architect at Zesty Interiör.

 

My life was spent growing up between England and the south of France as I come from a mixed background consisting of a british father and french mother.

My father having worked all of his professional life in the hospitality and catering industry, I myself began, at the age of 15, working in restaurants, bars and hotels alongside my studies, even competing in a cooking competition for rotary international where i won the young chef award of the year for the south west of England in 2006.

This is where I began to discover my passion, not only for food  and the hospitality business, but more so for the space where it is consumed.

My primary background consists mainly of restaurant, hotel and retail design and have worked with a number of brands and  projects all over the globe. This experience and my natural curiosity of the way we live and the world we live in, has allowed me to have an understanding of various client expectations and demands on a global level as well as a true understanding of the perception of design seen through different eyes.

I just recently moved to the wonderful city of Malmö after having spent 2 years in Copenhagen working as a retail designer and to broaden my skills in the design industry even further.

I obtained my Bachelor’s degree in interior architecture at the University of Huddersfield in the UK as well as an added year from l’ESDAC, école de design, d’arts appliqués et de communication, in the South of France. I also obtained a Bachelor’s degree in digital concept development from KEA university in Copenhagen to better understand the changing trends within design and the inclusion of new technologies within design concepts.

My interest in traveling to many foreign countries instilled in me a love of architecture and culture. When I am not designing or working, you will find me exploring new places, singing and strumming on my ukulele or most likely with a glass of good wine in hand and cooking up a treat in the kitchen.
