With over two decades of experience as an artistic director, managing the inception of numerous cultural endeavours, French designer Frédérick Gautier pursued further education at the École du Paysage in Versailles. Here, he delved into the world of modelling and ceramics. Intrigued by brutalism, Gautier sought a clay variety that would mimic the appearance of concrete upon firing. Since its introduction, his FCK signature has graced each of his exceptional creations made with this distinctive material.
