Alexandre Phelippeau

A graduate of ESTP [École Spéciale des Travaux Publics, du bâtiment et de l'industrie, a Paris engineering and research graduate school] Alexandre Phelippeau began his career as an engineer in the Vinci construction group before embarking on the restoration of historical monuments, where he joined… his father Jean-Paul! So his path intersected with his family’s and he discovered – who could ever have imagined - a passion for upholstery. In 2011, he became an upholsterer and in 2012 joined the family business before taking over from his father in 2015.
Combining the humility lying at the very heart of excellent craftsmanship and pride in its beauty, Alexandre Phelippeau adapted the 19th century’s technical complexity to the most advanced possibilities of the 21st. He has blended new materials with innovative technology thereby re-energizing Maison Phelippeau.
