As designer Éric Jourdan, who was their teacher in Saint-Étienne, would say: “Their name, the “Atelier BL119”, reminds us more of a secret prototype by André Citroën than of a young design studio, as if we were immediately projected into the world of industrial design and its myths.”

The tone is given!

Hervé Dixneuf and Grégory Blain, who joined forces in 2007 to create the “Atelier BL119”, make up an atypical duo, far from the usual line of strategy one comes across in the work of young designers. Their difference in the realm of design resides in their culture of the “project”, in which the elaboration of forms that are slightly out of sync with everyday life come to destabilize our domestic world and the way we perceive things and space. These projects emerge from research nourished by cultural influences and a quest for harmony between drawing and functionality. Projects born from the vision of the missing object, the desire to explore texture, new usages, to visit and (re)form objects, and draw them differently.

Although they are both young, they have already worked for famous manufacturers such as Cinna, Roset and CIAV. Amongst those projects are the Niche, Kilo, 100 Watts, Bardo and Arborescence…

Their generous, offbeat approach takes us from one surprise to another: the beginning of a new page in the history of design… Both graduated from the Saint-Étienne School of Fine-Arts in 2006, and their creations have been exhibited at the School in October 2013.
