Sascha Nordmeyer, design
French German designer and artist, born in Germany in 1977. After his studies at the ESAD in Reims, he joined the luxury house S.T. Dupont and created most notably accessories for the James Bond film “Casino Royale”.
At heart an explorer and interested in an experimental approach, he opened his own studio in 2009 and became known through the internet with the project Communication Prosthesis, exhibited in the MoMA in New York in 2011 and since then it has been manufactured by the editor Artecnica.
Obsessed by paper and influenced by an initiation-like voyage to the tropical forest of South East Asia, he also works on the fantastical representation of the flora in the form of objects and installations. This approach can be seen in the series Déesses Papillon (Butterfly Goddesses) of 2015, created for the exhibition Favoris#1 and the editor moustache.

Mylène Farcy et Charles Durand – DSPLY, light design and architecture
With a technical and artistic education, Mylène Farcy and Charles Durand mix visual arts and architecture in light filled installations where the sensorial experience of the spectators is at the heart of their research.
They seek to create links between the public, the work and the context, by playing with the spectator’s expectations or by modifying their perception of the space.
The light becomes the perceived object, sometimes used as a guide, sometimes to reveal emotions, it is worked upon like a material, like a unique architecture.
Caroline Dugois, graphic designer
Visual artist, a graduate of the École Supérieure d’Art de Lorraine à Épinal and of the École Nationale Supérieure d’Art de Nancy. Drawing in a very varied form and writing are the two mediums used with a marked interest for the object of the book. Having been a trainee in Aux Doigts Qui Rêvent, a publishing house in Dijon, whose objective is to renovate and create tactile books for visually impaired and blind people, and campaigns for the idea that no matter who the reader, they can find an adapted and fair method to increase their library of images and to tell themselves stories. She is essentially working today on tactile books to share between people who can see and non seeing people.
Designer with a passion for automaton makers and their knowledge, and who brings together noble materials and mechanic solutions just as much as robotics and new technologies, he is inspired by this universe to create the design of his objects. His motto : poetry of movement.
After a technical training and a complete course in the ESAD Reims in product design, his work deals with everyday objects as much as scenographic installations. ESAD Reims/ Bernard Chauveau have worked with him on several objects. He is participating with the Chaire IDIS as a young research engineer (Industrie, Design et Innovation Sociale).
