The beginning was photography for Tristan COLAFRANCESCO, in the punk scene from 2009 until 2011 in Brittany, France.
He then studied metal, first with a degree in metalwork with the Compagnons du Devoir, and in the company Metafer (a Living Heritage Company). Then, comes a second certificate but this time, in artistic ironwork.
He gained experience while working at Heritage restoration companies and artistic metalworks houses, and finally, in 2017 he created the Ateliers Cola, working since then with various designers on furniture, installations and special objects.
His workshop is located in Avallon, a medieval town at the door of the Morvan, one of the most treasured forests of Burgundy.
