Zyva is an architecture and design studio developing a body of work exploring Trans-Design, including furnitures and the global space concepts.
Anthony Authié (born in 1992) is a French architect. He lives and works in Paris. His architectural novel Baston de regards, a reflection on the professional experiences of a young architect, is published that same year by Parenthèses Editions. He founded Zyva Studio in 2019, a practice operating between architecture and design, and released “Muscle”, an essay that explores the relationship between the body and architecture. He later developed a series of works exploring Trans-Design, including furniture and the global environment. Exploring boundaries of visual representation, Anthony Authié, a selfdescribed maximalist architect and “Trans-Designer”, draws inspiration in the reminiscences of his youth in the 2000s. His work is informed by diverse popular references, ranging from Matrix to Dragon Ball Z, Arnold Schwarzenegger, car tuning and reality television. Through his thoughtfully whimsical work, the founder expresses a rejection of the minimalistic and sterile ideas of modernism, where the ornamental is not crime but rather a catalyst for the imagination. The designer works to highlight rather than deny nonsensical defects and deformities in order to generate spatial oddities and curiosities. His projects are published in specialized magazine Designboom, Domus, AD, Coté Paris, Frame, Dezeen, Stir.
