— People have a tendency of talking about Scandinavian design as highly functional while the French is said to be more decorative. We do not define ourselves as typically French designers. Nowadays our inspiration is international and we consider ourselves functionalists, a tradition that exceeds the European context.
— We always aspire to make an object in accordance with its context, while adding a sensitive layer, such as a pattern. Perhaps that is our nod to the ornamental tradition of France?
For their recent collaboration with Muuto, the duo assessed the multiple functions and roles an object plays in our lives and how this differs based on its placement in a bathroom, bedroom, kitchen, restaurant or home office. Distilling this information, they aspired to create a universal and unpretentious object at ease in a multitude of settings.
