BIG-GAME

Since coming together in 2004, there's been big doings indeed for the youthful trio behind the Lausanne, Switzerland, design studio Big-Game. With offerings in product, furniture and interior design, it's helmed by Swiss native Grégoire Jeanmonod, French expat Augustin Scott de Martinville and Belgium expat Elric Petit. The founders met as students at the Swiss university of arts and design, ECAL, and, along with their design work, are all now professors there. The firm's varied client list includes Karimoku New Standard, Praxis, Alessi, Materia and Veuve Clicquot.

Following their acknowledged credo—"From confrontation comes progress"—the designers continually draw upon their diverse backgrounds to arrive at a creative synthesis of the experimental and the practical in their work. Represented in the collections of the Zürich Museum of Design, the Musée du Grand-Hornu, the Centre Georges Pompidou as well as the French National Fund of Contemporary Art, their projects have also been shown in various exhibitions and widely published in major magazines. The book Big-Game: Design Overview was published in 2008 on the occasion of their first monographic exhibition in a museum.
