Cadestin studied at the famous Ecole Boulle and the National School of Decorative Arts. Following his graduation, he joined the Society of Decorative Artists. In 1970, he met Christian Ragot with whom he began researching materials such as latex foam and plastic and together, they developed concepts of housing. Cadestin had also worked for an interior design firm named Teda until 1983. He then decided to create his own firm to continue creating furniture and home furnishings. During his career, he has teamed up with Daniel Bernard with whom he designed many pieces of furniture. Cadestin worked in the art department of 1984 movie, Full Moon in Paris, in which his designs appear. In 1988, Cadestin was awarded the René Gabriel Prize for his work (so far).
