Instilling a sense of history and emotion into each new creation is what characterises the approach of Benoît Convers. Indeed, with each new design he proves that the utility of an object can be animated with an emotional dimension, with memory and with meaning. He achieves this by breathing a hidden life into his creations and by conferring on them a secret dimension. In 2003, whilst working on the Nomadic stool, he was inspired by his dog and set out to give the stool the same physical and loyal sensibility. This morphology became the starting point of what was to become the emblematic “Mobilier de Compagnie” collection. As the designer of more than one hundred and twenty pieces for the ibride label, Benoît has developed an ecology of conception, where each product is enhanced both by simple assembly procedures and by production on a local scale. His greatest ambition is to design objects whose presence becomes essential to our lives and in doing so become items to be passed on from one generation to the next.
