BDW DIZAJNLABS

Masterclass held for entrepreneurs and designers by a leading design impressario, who helped bring LAUFEN to global success. The love and passion of designing, developing and communicating products, building brands and leading people in a creative process follow through Marc Viardot’s professional history like a red string – starting in 2002 with a Master’s degree of Business and Economic Studies with a focus in Marketing at the Albert-Ludwig- University of Freiburg in Germany. Since working with a raw material that could be transformed into exquisite designed products held a special allure, Marc Viardot joined the Laufen Bathrooms AG in Laufen, Switzerland, in 2003 and has remained with the company ever since. Starting as Export Area Manager Commercial Subsidiaries he supported the development of the commercial Laufen subsidiaries in Central Europe, Asia and North America where he was based for nine month. Promoted in 2009 as Head of Product Management his responsibilities shifted to lead the product portfolio of all product categories of Laufen and Jika: Ceramics, Wellness, Furniture and Accessories.

During the 10 year history of Normann Copenhagen, we have learned that passion for design and architecture is strongly connected to people and not places. Coming from a part of the world where DESIGN is almost part of your DNA and every household has a selection of Design Classics, does not guarantee that passion is found.   When coming to Belgrade for the BDW 2009 we found a dedication and passion at the highest level. We can only be jealous that such events, created with passion and real interest to push the viewers and visitors to the next level are not more commonly found in Denmark. That again is a tribute to the great efforts found behind BDW and we hope to be part of your events in the years to come.
