Born in Togo, Africa and raised in France, Elie Ahovi is an industrial designer living in Lille. As the story goes, his mind was freed while growing up, he became a dreamer and his dreams led him to design. He thinks that greatness takes time and focus. He believes that the best way to predict the future is to design it; thats's why his pure aesthetic and perfectionism push him to go beyond the bounds to produce unique, inspirational and visionary work led by functional ideas. Upon graduating from Institut Supérieur de Design with a master degree in Services and Product Design, he has been trained at the global French sporting goods chain store Décathlon and the badass Chicago-based studio MINIMAL, Inc. He is grateful to have had the opportunity to work with world class companies and talent but also thankful to see you there. Elie is currently looking for new opportunities, however you can find him visiting big cities, looking for vintage boomboxes, eating crêpes, or riding his bike. Lately, he has been making plans to travel to space.
