Philosophie

Our first teamwork as designers started by
building tree houses and contraptions in our
neighbourhood when we were kids. Afteron, we
followed different scholarships leading to
mechanics for one and decoration for the other,
but still keeping in touch and being good friends
all along. Later on, we quite randomly converged
to the the same interest and fascination for
product design having a good arts school nearby
our home village on the lake of Geneva coast.
This study experience gave us both the urge to
be able to make a living out of our growing
passion. After realising that our unlike roots
could become our major skill, we quite naturally
decided to open our design studio together in
2007, once we were settled in Lausanne, working
part time as design and technology teachers in
the same University we studied in: the ECAL
school (University of Art of Lausanne) and the
rest of our time designing products for several
brands such as Ligne Roset, Cinna, Roche Bobois,
Droog, Etain et Prestige amongst others. So here
we are now at the age of 32, in a dream that
became true : Two good old friends "completely
complementary", inventing, drawing, imagining,
constructing and designing things that we hope
will bring some fun, pleasure and comfort to use
for us as much as for others !
