Born in an artistic family circle, Thomas Bastide felt the need to be creative from early childhood, with a strong penchant for volume, the “third dimension”. Carried away by his passion, he majored in art and design at the National College of Graphic arts and in industrial design at the National College of Applied Arts and Crafts (ENSAAMA) in Paris.
Further to honing his sculptor’s skills he studied at the CIRVA (Centre International de Recherche sur le Verre et les arts plastiques) in Marseilles and at the famous Pilchuck School in Seattle (USA).
Thomas Bastide, who lives in Paris, is at home in the world of luxury and has designed exquisite lamps, items of furniture, glasses and perfume bottles for luxury brands such as Baccarat, Hennessy, Taittinger and Starbay. He has also worked with French silversmiths such as Puiforcat, Christofle and Ercuis.
For the Wiener Silber Manufactur he designed the Caviar- and Wodka Set "Ikra Ice".
