Maison et Objet 2019 will be, once again, a place to not only admire contemporary design, but also know more about the field, thanks to the help of the experts in it. One of the most awaited conferences in the event is: French Design: an identity emerging from a collaboration between new designers and their editors. It will open its doors for all the curious professionals and enthusiasts at January 21, Monday, at 04.00 pm until 04.45 pm. Expect to find it at The Talks section in Hall 7.
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.
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.
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.
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.
