Born in 1975 in Nice, Philippe now lives between France and Italy. He studied applied arts in France and whilst still a student created the "Ailleurs" garden with G. Gardet, which won a prize at the Chaumont sur Loire competition and the Habitat-winner Flac lamp.
Since 1999 he has worked as a freelance designer with the De Lucchi studio in Milan, managing numerous design projects. Since 2005 his research projects have been backed by the French VIA which has permitted him to produce various prototypes, bringing him industrial visibility. In 2009 Ligne Roset produced one of his designs for upholstered furniture.
