PLP01 is a multi-purpose object designed to give interiors a contemporary and graphic touch. 

Whether it's a dish to serve coffee to your friends, a pocket-table, an altar dedicated to your fetish of Swiss design, this ultra minimalist object holds its strength in the varied positioning of its CNC machined disc. 

The tray thus becomes a game of balance and allows all possible combinations.

The entire object is made of steel galvanized in the Lausanne region.

New Waves is a collection of mirrors and lights using a unique digital hammering technique. This computer-assisted embossing of a mirror-polished stainless steel plate follows a random algorithm. This industrial method makes each model unique.

In addition to a visual effect identical to the reflections of the movements of water, the dissociative nature of the usability of this object and its manufacturing technique makes it a hyper graphic sculptural object that can be integrated into various environments.

Smooth Waves is a tableware design project commissioned by Maison BUET. 

We were asked to design all the tableware for the renewal of Maison BUET. After 6 months of intense developments, more than 300 pieces were made with love by De Marc Porcelaine.  

The concept of the project was to create an interaction between the user and his tableware. 3 families to serve hot chocolate, brunch and a degustation plate. The waves are in negative under every cup or bowl to let the user play with it.

A lot of developments and prototypes were made to find the perfect slide and to give the possibility to combine every object.

Valentine Fabrique SA develops, manufactures and sells kitchen equipment since 1947. All the products are manufactured in Switzerland.
 
This pure industrial project led us to fully redesign the control knob and the informations shown on the graphics. We designed physically the graphical informations of getting the temperature up into the knob.

Designer’s Table is our experimental research project in product and experience design in tableware and the act of dining. This is what we call augmented gastronomy.

We started this project in 2017 and designed a collection of 5 objects for this third season. All the prototypes are produced by local craftsmen in Switzerland.

The thematic for this third season was space travel and we designed all the objects with inspirations from the Apollo 11 mission.

Table lamp associating the handcrafted glass, the high precision fabrication of the aluminium tubes and the handcrafted gradient anodizing. The downward lighting is diffused through the draped glass on its cantilevered structure.

The work on the metal pieces is done by swiss companies usually making watchmaking pieces and the glass handcrafted by Matteo Gonet in Basel.

The concept was to put a dialogue between the smoothness of the handcrafted glass and the hardness of the CNC-milled aluminium tubes. This dialogue is accentuated by the two various forms and texture of the materials: lined-metal like the watchmaking guillochage and smooth for the glass.

Designer’s Table is our experimental research project in product and experience design in tableware and the act of dining. This is what we call augmented gastronomy.

We started this project in 2017 and designed a collection of 4 objects for this second season. All the prototypes are produced by local craftsmen in Switzerland.

The thematic of this second season was the aviation and all the objects are designed in a graphic elevation and inspired by the aerodynamics.

Having the cheap gazebo that one throws away after 6 months as a starting point, SonneMondSterne is a garden shelter easy to mount and dismount using sustainable materials like aluminium and boat canvas and noble material like Douglas First wood.

The design, brutalist and aiming the functional simplicity contrasts with the poetry of the created space. The tripod structure is surrounded by a circular canvas. Fastened to the end of the uprights, it is stretched in the middle by pulling up a handle like a clamp. The tension rigidifies the whole set and gives the inclinaison of the roof.

Each season, we organize around 20 dinners with 20 people each time and welcome them in our space to experiment with them the interactions we propose with our designs and to gather the results in a convivial way.

Carrozzeria is a table lamp fully handformed in metal that sources its inspiration in the very aerodynamic shapes of the iconic cars of the 1930's. 

Inspired by my grandfather who was a famous Swiss race car builder, we wanted to produce an object with the empirical process of working directly with the material.
