AUGUSTIN SCOTT DE MARTINVILLE,
ELRIC PETIT AND GRÉGOIRE JEANMONOD,
FOUNDERS OF BIG-GAME STUDIO
OUR CONNECTION TO BIG-GAME
QWSTION'S co-founder Christian met Augustin during his Industrial Design studies at ECAL, where they noticed shared interests and an entrepreneurial spirit. Meanwhile Big-Game has become one of the most recognized design studios worldwide.
Big-Game’s playful approach paired with modernist principles has made them stand out, resulting in collaborations with some of the biggest names like HAY, Magis or Logitech. We’ve featured their work in the platform of our QWSTION Stores in Zürich and Lausanne.
A bit scared the fabric could get dirty a bit too easily – and slightly worried it’s not going to perform as well as the "petrol based" counterparts. So far it’s holding up well, though.
What do you care about in life?
Together, we share the same desire of designing objects for a living and working with friends. We’re quite lucky to be able to do both :)
HOW DO YOU ADRESS THIS WITH YOUR WORK?
Building our studio in the last 15 years was quite a challenge, but also very rewarding – now we get to design furniture, watches, lamps, tableware and interiors for brands around the world: our job is never boring!
WHAT DO YOU LOOK FOR IN THE THINGS YOU BUY?
Functional and long lasting is the key – especially in a world where we are constantly pushed to consume more – we look for products that are useful, durable and comfortable.
