THEVOZ-CHOQUET bridge together aspects of contemporary thinking with a rational approach of product industrialisation and communication. Through self-initiated projects, collaborations or private commissions, Thévoz—Choquet embrace all aspects of product design development from initial investigation of an idea to complete creative solutions including photography and art direction. During their year at ECAL, Joséphine and Virgile get accustomed to the luxury industry and its relationship to craftsmanship. They take on the opportunity to present work for renown brands such as Baccarat, Hermès and Christofle, while exhibiting their work in Paris, Brussels and Milan. Their common conception of work and complementary personalities encourage them to work together on projects ranging from sunglasses to lamps that they will showcase in Geneva, Lausanne, Milan and London.
Their work emphasises simple shapes, material diversity and their use in specific contexts.
