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.

BDW was a wonderfully rewarding experience. I think the mix that made it work so well was a tangible passion for design realized in the most relaxed and friendly atmosphere that I have come across for any event like this – truly inspirational, long may it thrive.   As for what is a smart, forging partnerships and working with like minded designers and clients always seems a pretty smart and rewarding way to go about design and I have a very good feeling that BDW will be the catalyst for many such collaborations.
