NICOLAS LE MOIGNE (CH)

Nicolas le Moigne’s designs are a celebration of juxtaposition. They show an understanding of, and capacity for, complexity and contrast: seemingly fragile yet resilient, at once artisanal yet also industrial, assuredly sophisticated yet without guile. Like a master swordsman he parries and ripostes between opposing materials, forms and conventions to produce designs that are rigorous and balanced.

This equanimity has brought the Swiss designer, and now also Head of the Master of Advanced Studies in Design for Luxury and Craftsmanship at ECAL/Ecole cantonale d’art de Lausanne, to the attention of both manufacturers and design galleries alike. Working between industrial companies such as Eternit, Serralunga or Atelier Pfister and galleries in London (Gallery Libby Sellers), Paris (Galerie NextLevel), Berlin (Helmrinderknecht Contemporary Design), Brussels (Fine Art Silver) or Mexico (Ediciones Jalapa), le Moigne’s dexterous approach is an elegant counterpoint to the chaos of a supersaturated design culture.

It was great for xarchitekten to be invited to BDW as Austrian Architects We were expecting a great time by experiencing all this different thinking’s on design issues. At first there was the road movie from Vienna to Belgrade: 600 Kilometers of flat land, an immense impression of wideness - like riding on a green ocean. Arriving Belgrade we were hosted by the perfect Organization and accompanied by very nice people of BDW. The most valuable element of BDW´s Performing, Discussing, Lecturing in the Theater, Visiting the Clubs and Restaurants of Belgrade has been the linking excellent thinking and facing experts coming from different fields of design as well as different regions of Europe. xarchitekten are convinced about the great role of BDW as an Place for multidisciplinary Evolution, therefore BDW is facing a great future. Hopefully xarchitekten will be connected to BDW again.
