Design Cream? Quèsaco? An event presenting 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 Didier Versavel.
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.
Interior designer, designer and graphic designer, Didier Versavel is part of this new generation of French talents "touch to everything". He graduated from Ecole Boulle and joined a recognized agency in furniture design. There, he learns that the designer must be versatile to get involved as much in the creation of products as on their communication. In 2006, he creates his own studio and deploys his talent all over the place. His numerous collaborations lead him to express himself, for example, in the field of furniture design with Désio or the Swiss 3; in the industrial object sector with surprising door creations for Drakkar; or in interior architecture with the ACCOR Group, which commissions concepts of hotell spaces. He has fruitful partnerships with the mass distribution, publishers, as well as craftsmen like the Compagnons du Devoir.
