French duo Gautier Pelegrin and Vincent Taïani joined their forces and created the Noon studio. After their studies in industrial product in France the two designers followed separated careers for a long time until the moment they decided to collaborate and create their own studio. The result of this fusion is a mix of different experiences that allows a new approach to furniture and object design. Different perspectives can be a barrier to productive collaboration but that's not the case with Noon studio; on the contrary it is an interchange of ideas, an effective way to stimulate creative thinking. The concepts of Noon studio come to confirm the fact that the collaboration of the two designers has only positive effects. A creative relationship that manages to generate new inspirational concepts.
Noon Studio's philosophy is simple and takes under consideration all these elements that play a significant role in everyday man's life. This is related to the successful and harmonic co-existence of man and object into the same space; a task that seems easy at first glance but there are various factors to be taken under consideration in order to achieve perfection.
This is more about an interaction between the man and its surroundings, a connection between the object and the space. Dialogue is a shared exploration towards greater understanding and connection, therefore simplicity is a critical element in the whole process. By using clear and simple forms the designers manage to keep the language clear and simple as well. Under these conditions a better communication between the man and the object is achieved creating this way an emotional bond between them. Honest materials and careful workmanship contribute to a high level design furniture, a design that has been studied in a way to make people's life easier.
Noon Studio is a design office created by two designers, Gautier Pelegrin and Vincent Taïani who studied together product design. Noon Studio is based in London and Avignon and specializes in various areas like Architecture, products, graphics, photography, video, web. Pelegrin and Taïani manage to give a different twist in everything they create as their objects reflect their experience over the years. Their belief is to design new objects with a philosophy of forward thinking and space awareness.
