Short Circuit: design meeting with Victoria Magniant

Bernard Touillon

It's within the Vivienne gallery, in the 2nd arrondissement of Paris, that the designer Victoria Magniant imagine his contemporary creations. Through a world of japonizing lines, she draws elegant furniture and lighting, alternating between armchairs in ash, coffee tables anthracite and fixtures colorful and pop.

As sober as it is exuberant Victoria Magniant handles the design like a sharing tool. Self-publisher, his furniture collections "Daiku" come in black or full color. The creative does not conceive of her job without an immediate link between herself and her audience, with a particular importance given to the meeting. Engaged in the furniture design, Victoria Magniant is imbued with a ecological will in his choice of materials.

From graphic design to an extraordinary designer

Direct, bright, its creations communicate visually with a strength and clarity that resemble him. Victoria Magniant naturally handles the drawing and the verb. His studies related to graphics and his passion for Japan are read between the lines of his collections of furniture and lighting. Designer-publisher in the heart of the Vivienne gallery. What does this choice entail? He suggests that working in short circuit, to create in Paris and manufacture in Europe is possible. I come from the world of textile creation and graphics. By drawing handmade objects that I wish affordable, I must find the shortest way in terms of diffusion.

Real relational proximity, without intermediary

From the craftsman to the customers, a direct meeting takes place. In the gallery, of the confrontation with forms are born desires, a craze for the tailored and especially a chain of privileged human relations. Your collections of furniture and lighting have an obvious flexibility. They assemble, divide, unfold in space? Initially calligraphy wins. I have to imagine that I write a chair, that the penciled volume of a table is already a table. They are living families who adapt to situations. As designate, it is no longer about maintaining a mystery of manufacturing.

Ecological and ethical furniture, worked manually

The collections engage a community that creates small scale and considers his job responsibly. Wood, blown glass, Japanese paper are chosen in a ecological approach conscientious. The valuation of manual work is it an important part of your creations? Yes it is the key. A virtuous circle, a ethical cycle worn as much by my cabinetmaker and developer Viesturs Kriskalns in Latvia, that my master glassmaker Wilfried Allyn in Saint-Gilles-Croix-de-Vie. Sometimes it's the small players who switch systems.

In the intimacy of design. From drawing to object, an imaginary space abounding and exclusive.

Bernard Touillon

The "Senki" suspensions in blown glass on which I work, speak of emptiness, air, landscapes. The question of the distortion of light interests me. The furniture "Daiku" comes in pigments, oils, varnishes and waxes sustainable. Values ​​shared with craftsmen. The exercise of color for the collection "Daiku" is it an extension? The potential of color is unique. We can play to infinity. In Laverdure & Son, Agathe Mousselon refines the development of color ranges for the tables, chairs, armchairs, benches, stools. A vibrant combinatorial adventure.
