Kouma design Workshop


David Bonnot


_Kouma design is led by a designer, David Bonnot, graduate of Strate and with 20 years of experience in the industry, including 16 years with a car maker as an innovation designer.

_I specialize in studying and development of innovative concepts including products with the most complex and technical architectures.

_I practice a pragmatic, simple and fair design. I adopt global working methods that, from the beginning, take into account marketing, user needs, technology and manufacturing processes adapted to customers' means.


_My working methods are concrete and based on creativity, CAD and prototyping to offer customers complete and easily visualized solutions. I am constantly striving to design a product that is fair and achieves the highest levels of measured and perceived quality.

_I also develop and manufacture my own products in small series, particularly in the watchmaking sector, and market them.

Kouma Design's production resources make possible to produce products at the customer's request, either individually or in small series. 

Respect for confidentiality is one of Kouma Design's priorities.


_Kouma Design follows the projects until they are put on the market:

Studying the existing system.

Understanding the market.
