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, a professor at ECAL/University of art and design Lausanne, to the attention of both manufacturers and design galleries alike. Working between industrial companies such as Eternit or Atelier Pfister and galleries in London, Paris, Berlin or Mexico, le Moigne’s dexterous approach is an elegant counterpoint to the chaos of a supersaturated design culture.
