Through his events, Axel Huynh also seeks to share his knowledge. His philanthropy pushes him to give visibility to young emerging creators. This is how Crazybaby! has established itself as one of the most influential agencies in the capital.
« I have the chance to participate to Paris Design Week since its creation in 2010 and to organize their official events, notably at « la Cité de la Mode et du Design ».
Paris Design Week represents a support to young talents that we bring out to the public by imagining design contests with brands represented by our agency CRAZYBABY! »
AXEL HUYNH PARIS is a French design brand that goes by several creative territories (furniture, objects, tables, decorations and textiles) in order to create the harmony of a unique style.
« My relationship with design is really instinctive. It has always been an integral part of my DNA. My oldest memory goes back to primary school where I was drawing seat profiles.
I could have become a fashion designer, but it was always the design that appealed to me in the first place.
However, I assume that when you are creative there are no limits to the platform used.
An artist is able to express himself on all types of platforms, material or dematerialized.
Take my example: I like creating a piece of furniture or a light with a mineral touch as much as a porcelain vase. I don’t like being locked in a box and this freedom pushes me to go further in creation. »
Axel Huynh’s inspirations are at the crossroads of the Bauhaus, for the minimalism of the lines and Art Deco for the choice of noble materials. He revisits his classic influences with a raw and minimal contemporary subtle and bold pieces.
« For me, the beauty of a design is its ability to be timeless I like the sobriety and the purity of the lines combined with the nobility of the materials. For my creations, I mix a lot of minerals and precious woods. »
His latest creation?
The “Mighty VIII” cuvée by Axel Huynh Paris, a clear crystal rosé wine from Saint-Victoire en Provence produced in association with the “Maison Louis François”. It is a wine with a subtle color and fruity and mineral notes. It was notably previewed in the Villa Ah at the Cannes Film Festival. It will be presented again in September 2020 during the Paris Design Week.
Then a modular sofa which accentuates the elegance of the posture.
« My latest creation is a modular « Yin&Yang sofa » that I developed with the design brand Munna and presented at the last Maison & Objet fair. This sofa is designed according to a new approach that combines comfort with design by adding a functional spirit to the modern interior. It’s a bit like a puzzle formed by black and white modules that allow you to compose your ideal shape.
I like that people take my creations and integrate them in their own way in their interior. When I design a piece of furniture, my first thought is about the last use of it, I like to imagine the posture, the look and the elegance that people will have with my creations. »
