Mahmoud Akram is a French designer. A true jack-of-all-trades, he has successfully moved from fashion to furniture design to lighting design.
Originally from Afghanistan, he began studying architecture in Paris before launching himself into the profession of designer in the early 80s.
We find him as the creator of the furniture for the restaurant Cargo from 1984 or the interior design of the media library of the science museum of La Villette in Paris.
After a stint in the world of fashion and ready-to-wear, notably for the Jacques Bogart brand, he became interested in lighting and created the T33 lamp, now iconic and published by Triode Design in the 2000s, as well as Louix, a lamp made by laser cutting.
