'Magnum' dining table by Pierre Favresse for La Chance
Two precocious entrepreneurs, Louise Breguet and Jean-Baptiste Souletie, have launched La Chance, a new French design company featuring the work of young international designers that debuted at MOST. Among the line-up are Pierre Favresse, Noé Duchaufour-Lawrance, Luca Nichetto, Note Design Studio and Jonah Takagi. The designs are all articulated in sober natural form, as well as a more colourful vibrant version. 'We're bored with plastic things and flashy stuff,' explains Souletie. 'And at the same time, we didn't want to conceptualise design. This is a commercial enterprise, not an art gallery.'
