A graduate of the École Nationale Supérieure des Arts Décoratifs, Pascal Bauer created Tebong in 1985. This led to a long list of products, furniture and light creations, which have been honoured with many prizes. This period was punctuated by various experiments, including the design of plastic furniture for the Olympic Games in Albertville, design of a subway station for the city of Rennes, a range of street lights for a university campus, and the creation of a theatrical, sculpted décor for the first Club-Med shop on the Champs-Elysées in Paris. Bauer left Tebong in 1993.
Bauer's career encompasses many milestone experiments conducted in collaboration with VIA, leading to a personal exposition in the VIA gallery. Several of his pieces have been acquired by the Fond National d'Art Contemporain. He has also done many years of research on objects with an exceptional capacity for change, objects which seem to possess a "morphology" rather than functioning as simple assemblies for a given purpose.
