Collaboration with Rémy Martin

DESIGN FOR LUXURY AND CRAFTSMANSHIP

Collaboration with Rémy Martin

Collaboration with Tomas Kral

Under the supervision of designer Tomas Kral, the students worked on the theme of mixology (the association of materials, just like the mixed ingredients that make up a cocktail) and developed in a few weeks various projects, focused either on objects related to a recipe or on ritual. For the launch of this project with Rémy Martin, we had the chance to spend two days in Cognac to discover the secrets of the production process and the cellars of the House, through numerous tastings, and then to immerse ourselves in the trendy Parisian world of cocktail bars by testing numerous recipes. In the end, 10 objects were designed by the 10 students from the programme.

Collaboration with Hermès 2014

Collaboration with Nicolas Le Moigne

The collaboration with Hermes allowed the students from the Master of Advanced Studies in Design for Luxury and Craftsmanship to discover the universe of window displays, where supports, lighting and colours need to draw your eye to the objects being showcased.

Collaboration with Francis Kurkdjian

DESIGN FOR LUXURY AND CRAFTSMANSHIP

Collaboration with Francis Kurkdjian

Collaboration with Jaime Hayon

For the very first collaboration with Parisian perfumer Francis Kurkdjian, the students of the programme were given carte blanche to revisit the codes of the eponymous house and find a new way of linking materials with the world of fragrances. Following a research and experimentations, some concepts were developed and prototyped in order to create a collection of olfactory objects: perfume diffusers made of rattan, fans made of brass and paper or a family of ceramic culbutos.
