ILS presents: Big Game – Everyday Object
8 November 2021 | 6.30pm
BIG-GAME is a design studio founded in 2004 by Augustin Scott de Martinville (French and Swiss, 1980), Elric Petit (Belgian,1978), and Grégoire Jeanmonod (Swiss, 1978). Based in Lausanne, Switzerland, BIG-GAME designs objects for companies such as Alessi, Hay, Muuto, Karimoku New Standard or Magis. Their creations are part of the collections of the Zürich Museum of Design, the Centre Georges Pompidou of Paris and the MoMA of New York. Along with their design practice, the three founders of BIG-GAME are also professors at the ECAL/University of Arts and Design in Lausanne.
Augustin Scott de Martinville, Elric Petit and Grégoire Jeanmonod are BIG-GAME. The studio describes its work as simple, functional and optimistic. From a bottle of wine sold in supermarkets to a chair in the collection of the MoMA, from a collaboration with Japanese potters to a piece of furniture sold at Ikea, the lecture gives an overview of fifteen years of industrial design work and reveals behind the scenes design processes and the pleasure these three designers have in creating objects that are now part of our daily lives.
