After graduating from the French National Institute for Advanced Studies in Design, l'ENSCI-Les Ateliers in 1999, he founded his own design studio in 2002.
Eclecticism is his personal choice. Cédric Ragot builds a cross category approach of industrial design, getting involved into a broad scope of application fields: from cosmetics to consumer electronics, from tableware to sports equipment, from furniture to the electrical appliance industry.
(Cappellini, Rosenthal, Panasonic, Roche Bobois, Alcatel, Swarovski, Schott, Paco Rabanne, Krups, Lacie, Azzaro, Häagen-Dazs, Veuve Clicquot)
Mixing creative imagination and industrial reality, he always associates with the functional aspect of an object a solid proposition in concept and image.
Several of his pieces have been awarded : a Good Design Award in 2007 for the Rosenthal Fast vase, a Wallpaper* Design Award in 2008 for the Roche Bobois Majordome side tables, a Reddot Design Award in 2009 for the LaCie flat cables.
Also, some of his works are part of the collection of the National Fund for Contemporary Art and are exhibited in Paris, Hanover, Vienna, New York, Milan.
