Building new ways to live and work

Cutwork is looking for an architecture / design student intern to join its team in Paris.

About Cutwork

We are an architecture and industrial design studio focused on new ways to live and work. Founded in 2016 and based in Paris, we design innovative spaces and furniture for pioneering companies who are reimagining the ways we live and work.

Recent projects include Polyroom, the full-scale development (architecture, interior, furniture) for the new shared living brand for one of the largest housing developers in Europe; FRAME award-winning Flatmates, the first large-scale coliving space in Paris for 800+ entrepreneurs; and the Cortex Shelter, an innovative flat-pack kit housing solution to help address the refugee housing crises.

Design technology

We have developed and patented an industrial technology that enables a new flexibility in design, manufacturing and shipping. Built around advancements in laser cutting and digital design files, we produce custom furniture for all of our projects, carrying out our spatial concepts with full control from the design to manufacturing.

We believe in sustainable design. All of our products are produced on demand on a project-basis (no stock, no warehousing, no overproduction) and our furniture is working towards being fully circular. In 2018, Cutwork was named in the Top 30 CleanTech companies in Europe.
