Only three years old, Thibault Huguet is a young architecture studio practising his art in both the French and Belgian capitals. Offering his services to major luxury brands such as Cartier and Paco Rabanne, he doesn’t hesitate to officiate for architecture studios for whom he creates furniture. Inspired by shipbuilding and aeronautics, he also delves into worlds as far removed from design as archaeology. At Paris Design Week, the young architect and designer will be presenting the astonishing “Plane” console in lacquered steel, as well as the elegant “Stern” pedestal tables in birch plywood.

A recent graduate of ESAD Saint-Etienne, Valentin Jager focuses his design practice on materials. The material chosen for his Paris exhibition focuses on marble, in partnership with Brocatelle, a company specialising in this veined stone. This collaboration took the form of the “Toggle Chair”, made from marble on aluminium honeycomb. This composite gives the marble an unexpected lightness, for anyone who has ever tried to lift a slab of it.

The exhibition will take place in one of the spaces of the Galerie Joseph group, official partner of Paris Design Week. A former industrial building, this unique two-storey venue offers a powerful yet elegant architecture, the ideal space to host the Paris Design Factory designers.

A Beirut-based multidisciplinary agency, Studio Bazazo presents itself as a studio that “pushes the boundaries of design by challenging systems that unite noble materials and artisanal techniques”. Founded by architect Ahmad Bazo five years ago, the agency specialises in the creation of high-end interiors, as well as furniture and lighting design.

At Paris Design Week, he will present new pieces from the “Mistral” collection. Inspired by the summer mists of the Mediterranean, this range, made from solid blocks of travertino rosso, features a mix of curved shapes evoking the spirit of southern France in the 1970s.

In 2018, Fabien Colomines decided to retrain as a joiner with the Compagnons du devoir. A year later, Senimo was born. A carpenter specialising in both furniture creation and made-to-measure furnishings, the designer conducts research around the curved form, via small series, made with materials sourced from reuse. A curve to be discovered through the “SHARPEI” and “SHAMALOW” stools, furiously seventies.

5. Corpus Studio

A two-headed architecture and design agency founded by Konrad Steffensen and Ronan Le Grand, Corpus Studio is dedicated to creating “spaces, objects, places, stories, atmospheres and environments. “Our approach is transdisciplinary, fusing architecture, decorative arts, art and furniture to create a global vision and a unique identity,” they explain. Corpus Studio is also a unique aesthetic language, reflected in a number of their creations on display at Paris Design Week.

A first stop at the Espace Commines is the BB collection, made from cast aluminium in the form of a simple circle cut, arranged and assembled in different ways, creating a play of geometry that is as poetic as it is functional.

 Then on to the Expressive Itinérance Design space, where the table from the “Apollo” collection will be on display. “Handcrafted in lava stone from Italian volcanoes, it juxtaposes the solidity of its architecturally arranged blocks with the delicacy of a crackled enamel finish,” explains the duo. “Its name is inspired by the remains of the Portal of Apollo on the island of Naxos, a structure both monumental and fragile.”
