Design Cream? Quèsaco? An event showcasing the crème de la crème of designers and architects, of course! And who says prestigious casting, says choice format. On Thursday March 26, 2018, ten creators, gathered for the Materials & Light fair, thus presented their creations, inspirations and projects in an atypical way in 20 images, projected 20 seconds apart. Zoom on the universe of Leonard Kadid.
The Design Cream nights, designed by Benjamin Girard from the Design Project agency, aim to offer a scene to the cream of the cream of creators to present their projects to a wide audience, in a format specific, rhythmic and concise, and in a relaxed atmosphere. What ensure a global success at these gatherings! Everything fits in the format, named Pecha Kucha: the guests have 20 slides, shown during 20 seconds each, and which scroll automatically; either 6 minutes and 40 seconds for each of them. No blah-blah: the various speakers expose here the essence of their achievements.
Today full-time designer, Leonard Kadid was however destined to a career as an architect. Indeed, his different professional experiences and his particular sensitivity to details push him quickly towards the creation of furniture. Zoom on a young shoot of promising design.
Barely thirty years old, and after having cut his teeth in renowned agencies, such as Dominique Perrault Architecture or Herzog & de Meuron, Léonard Kadid, graduated from the École Polytechnique de Lausanne (Switzerland) and the École d'Architecture of the City and Territories of Marne-la-Vallée, already has some great projects to its credit. It was in these studios that he was introduced to the practice of design, to which he decided to devote himself entirely at the beginning of the year. The result is refined works, with forms close to abstraction, whose great sobriety adapts to all interiors.
