Thierry Bataille I I +32 (0) 65 35 40 72

Since graduating in interior architecture and design, Thierry Bataille has gone on

to create a wide range of spaces, furniture and object, which respect an ecological

process: “The environmental problems we face today force us to adopt a different

take on furniture.” That’s why he has been working for years on a concept to obtain

a maximum number of products from a single panel, thus minimising waste. Thierry

designs in line with the way the “CNC” machine cuts. All of his producer’s machines

run on electricity supplied by photovoltaic panels.

In his research, he pushes his concept even further, and assembling furniture becomes

a playful nesting game, as it is done without tools and with very few nuts and

bolts. Thierry Bataille also raises questions about the decorative quality of the object

and its place in our collective imagination, that is to say our cultural references.

LINADURA i i +32 (0) 497 90 72 82

Linadura is a Belgian editor of contemporary design furniture and object. The name

derives from a contraction of the words “line” in English and “durable” (sustainable)

in French. This Métis nature of the logotype reflects the values of our activity: a

simple design, sustainable and functional which responds to aggregate demand. As

a home furnishing manufacturer, Linadura designs good and sustainable products

process. Emblematic piece of the brand, Recto Verso has

No More Twist i

Specialised in the art of weaving, the No More Twist textile design studio is the

brainchild of three designers who graduated from the Academy of Fine Arts in Brussels,

Marie Beguin, Anne de Prémare and Michèle Populer. They have already worked

with companies and designers, including the famous workshop of Jean-Paul Gaultier.

Anne de Prémare has also worked with Malhia Kent Paris on haute couture

weaving collections. Michèle Populer, also a historian, is developing a vegetable dye

technique and Marie Beguin, along with her work as assistant to the designer Cenk

Kivrikoglu, teaches weaving at the Academy of Arts in Maastricht.

The studio makes its own small series of objects. The production is done entirely in

Belgium. The creations of the brand are distinctive in that they work with woven fabric,

developed by the designers in their studio. Each fabric explores the possibilities

arising from a study of colours, materials, and crossing of threads.

The workshop also offers its expertise in the field of weaving to the world of fashion

or interior design within the framework of ad hoc collaborations

Collection east

Inspired by a trip to Japan, the underlying concept is

that of a two-sided fabric with two very different faces

and changing patterns over an area of 2m.

The blend of materials used is designed to procure a

warm, soft and supple result.

Frédéric Richard i i +32 (0) 494 81 16 21

A cabinetmaker by training, Frédéric Richard divides his time between a design studio

and a production workshop where he makes his own furniture and objects.

Very much at home in his workshop, in direct contact with the materials, he is constantly

pushing back the frontiers through his mastery of ancient techniques. Drawing

is an important step in his creative process. He uses a variety of techniques, tirelessly

trying out forms until he achieves the perfect balance. Far from being extravagant, his

projects aspire towards a deliberate simplicity, giving them a surprisingly poetic and

timeless character.


Pieces produced by the designer himself in collaboration

with local craftsmen.
