According to the speakers, editors play a crucial role in the future of design, and among them, young editors have major roles in introducing a new dynamic that will take us towards the future. The question raised is: “Who are these new editors and how do they work with designers?”  That’s what this conference proposes to answer, introducing us to the hidden editors who think and create tomorrow’s French design.

“Rocky” by Charles Kalpakian. It is a sculptural piece. It can be used as a console or a credenza, but will also accommodate books and objects to become the most graphic display or bookshelf. ©La Chance

Among them we have, as an example, Louise Breguet who graduated from the National School of Architecture of Versailles in 2007.
She began her architectural career in Beijing by participating in the construction of new luxury facilities at Beijing Airport. Back in France, Louise continues her career as an architect and creates apartments in Paris but also holiday homes on the Cote d’Azur as well as in Haiti.

“Tembo” by Note Design Studio. It is a sculptural stool that combines a wood metal body with a solid cork seat. The designers drew their inspiration both from the African tam-tams -Tembo means elephant coot in swahili- and give a nod to the Memphis group of the 80s aesthetics. Photo: ©La Chance

In 2011, she was enchanted by her entrepreneurial roots. Direct descendant of Abraham Louis Breguet, clockmaker and Louis Breguet, aviator / inventor; Louise joins forces with Jean-Baptiste Souletie and launches La Chance, furniture, lighting and contemporary rugs brand. The launch of the brand in 2012 in Milan had a worldwide impact, Louise and Jean-Baptiste started then to be sponsored by Tom Dixon.
Today, the brand is distributed in more than 20 countries. It collaborates with the rising generation of the most talented designers.

The Best of French Design at Maison et Objet Conferences 2019 - La Chance - Bolt maison et objet The Best of French Design at Maison et Objet Conferences 2019 The Best of French Design at Maison et Objet Conferences 2019 La Chance Bolt

“Bolt” by Note Design Studio. It is the most iconic stool of the collection. Its unique silhouette is highly recognizable with his 4 solid logs elegantly held by a contrasting metal ring. Bolt is a paradoxe: brutal and very refined at the same time. The stool is also surprisingly comfortable while at first many consider it only as decorative piece. It is much more than that, it a sculpture for daily use. ©La Chance

In 2018, Louise wanted to be more involved into the french furniture branch and so, with Mathieu Galard, she created a “furniture editor group” at the Ameublement Français.
Stay with us to find out more about these new talents in French contemporary design.

The Best of French Design at Maison et Objet Conferences 2019 - La Chance - Zorro maison et objet The Best of French Design at Maison et Objet Conferences 2019 The Best of French Design at Maison et Objet Conferences 2019 La Chance Zorro

“Zorro” by Note Design Studio. It is a minimalist yet graphical coffee table. The masked hero signature inspired the ingenious Z structure which supports a duo of overlapping round tabletops giving a sense of lightness to this simple and elegant piece. The design plays with our perception as Zorro seems to be made up of 2 nested tables as it is one and only table. ©La Chance
