What is something you hope to see trending in design in the future?
A higher and better conscience of the environment…less is more.
What would your dream project or dream client be right now?
I really would love to do a very unexpected, nature-related project such as the island residence we have designed in the Pacific, or a private beach club for surfers in Montauk like we have been asked for in the past.
How would you define your work in three words?
Consistent, demanding, exciting.
If you had one more hour in the day what would you do with it?
Painting, drawing…others than designing interiors and pieces of furniture.
How you define beauty?
Beauty is luckily something you cannot define, but only feel.
What’s on the drawing board right now?
Liaigre Furniture & lighting collection originally come from pieces designed within the frame of Interior Architecture projects. At the moment my team and I are working on the 2021 collection, which will be available in our 30 showrooms in the world.
In terms of Interior design projects, we are currently working on about 20 projects, including private residential projects in Asia, a boutique hotel in Tel Aviv, a penthouse in a small building with David Chipperfield in Greenwich Village in NYC, 3 motor and sailing yachts…We have a lot on our drawing board and this is really stimulating.
How important are The International Design & Architecture Awards?
Running for those awards is for us one of the rare and qualitative ways to show our creation at its very best (usually this level of Interior architecture projects remain un disclosed as per the owners’ wish) and share it with our peers.
Studio Liaigre have been shortlisted for Luxury Residence – Global Award in The International Design & Architecture Awards 2020.
design et al only work with the world’s leading designers.
