Alexandre Moronnoz, France

Graduate of the Ecole Nationale Supérieure de Création Industrielle, Les Ateliers, Paris, Alexandre’s work  combines research into new methods and materials, made to order pieces  and  collaborations with both architects and manufacturers.  Alexandre is continually searching for new methods while pushing the limits of design.
Working with the autoroutes of France from 2003 to 2006 Alexandre was an initiator in the studies of sustainable mobility.

His collaborative projects include work with agencies such as  Delo Lindo forTefal in 2005-2006,  Radi Designers for Schneider in 2006,  Plan Créatif for Gaz de France in 2003-2004 and for the RATP in 2007.

Two urban furniture projects have been developed  with VIA in 2006  and ‘Interférences’ in 2007 for Brussels Environment, marked a srong tie between object and space. For Alexandre an object, like architecture must take the environment into the context of  the design. Alexandre welcomes your commissioned projects.
