Nathanaël Desormeaux and Damien Carrette have both graduated with a master’s degree in industrial design. They started their career in London- the first alongside with Benjamin Hubert and the second with Doshi Levien. During this period Nathanaël Desormeaux worked to explore design’s innovative side, and Damien Carette discovering more decorative aspects. Ever since, their joint creations have been nourished by this complementary duality. The Knot chair, spotted by the VIA, combines their passion for design and a sharp sense of technological logic. It comprises two curved steel tubes that slot together. There are no screws or nuts as the weight of the person on the seat holds the structure in place.
Julien first came across feathers while working on a Jean-Paul Gaultier fashion show. The beauty of this truly magical material led him to Octave Feuillet, the only professional secondary school in France. Julien worked as an apprentice for a year at Lemarié, a reference in the profession, and in 2014, he took the plunge and began to create his own pieces implementing an almost scientific treatment of his raw material: he dyes, soaks in various chemicals and then burns the feathers with acid before applying the traditional skills which he has so patiently acquired. His approach was rewarded with a Grand Prix de la Création de la Ville de Paris 2015. To give you an idea of his art, his showpiece Bado Senshi is a suit of samurai armour made entirely of feathers.
Pierre Charrié, a specialist in product design and winner of the Grand Prix de la Ville de Paris 2016, graduated from ENSCI-Les Ateliers and Nîmes fine arts school. In his work, he aims to extend the user’s sensory relationship with his astonishing creations, by designing a new kind of object that reacts to sounds, movement, touch and other stimulating things. In a world dominated by technology, he imagines new uses to bring a touch of magic into everyday life. His Surfaces Sonores are a new take on the living room loudspeaker that combine a small vibrating speaker cone and a surface specially designed for the quality of its resonance which enables it to amplify sound. As for his Aérobie lamp, it monitors the room’s air quality using built-in CO2 detectors and vibrates and rustles like a living organism sensing danger when the room needs airing.

After studying at the École Camondo, Charlotte Juillard created her own son studio in 2014. From object design to scenography, she immerses herself in materials and gestures to give birth to surprising objects. A desk covered with a flexible, leather and wood envelope; handcrafted pieces of embroidery on oak and a ceramic loudspeaker… Her fresh, audacious and feminine universe brings a wind of change to the French design scene.
The two designers behind this design studio (founded in 2012), Manon Leblanc and Romain Diroux, met at the École Supérieure des Arts décoratifs in Strasbourg. She had already graduated from École Estienne and trained in product design at the Design Academy Eindhoven; he had just finished a scientific course. In their work, they showcase traditional know-how and materials using design to highlight elements of cultural, geographic and historical heritage. One example is their reinterpretation of Meisenthal’s traditional Christmas tree baubles, whose shapes are fashioned in collaboration with a specialist in flint knapping and then modelled in 3D to comply with moulding and manufacturing requirements.
AC/AL Studio : Amandine Chhor & Aissa Logerot
Amandine Chhor studied industrial design at ENSAAMA Olivier de Serres before enrolling at ENSCI Les Ateliers. She followed the same path as Aïssa Logerot, who also studied cabinetmaking at École Boulle. Between 2009 and 2012, they regularly worked together on projects to encourage the development of craftsmanship in foreign countries. In parallel, both worked independently for some prominent firms such as Mathieu Lehanneur, Bruno Moinard and Hermès. The duo founded their studio in 2013 with a trademark style: objects that have a story to tell and which cultivate harmony and a perfect balance between function, form and technique.
