Designers and manufacturers close collaborations

Designers and manufacturers close collaborations

This year in particular will showcase the importance of the collaborations between manufacturers and designers. Together, these partnerships explore new possibilities in developing products that not only respond to the evolving needs of the consumers, from contract to residential projects, but define new typologies of products. These joint efforts answer the challenges of our changing world, while creating products that are smart, beautiful, and needed in order to embrace and fulfill our future needs. This year, WantedDesign will not only be the hub for emerging designers and manufacturers, but also an exciting meeting point to discover the work of some of the most talented and internationally recognized designers like Werner Aisslinger for Moroso, Constance Guisset for MG French Design, Jasper Morrison for Cappellini, Philippe Nigro for Ligne Roset, and Francois Azambourg, to name a few.

Constance Guisset + MG French Design

Indoors or out, the collections exude simplicity, cheerfulness and a form of elegance that does not take itself too seriously. Elaborately worked, cut, bent and fashioned in our manufacturing workshops near Lyon, metal remains our preferred material. More
