Based in Belgium and Lausanne, design collaborative Big-Game is a Euro mix of Swiss (Gregoire Jeanmonod), Belgian (Elric Petit), and French (Augustin Scott de Martinville). All three graduated from the prestigious Ecole Cantonale d’Art de Lausanne in 2006, and immediately went on to found Big-Game. Their thoughtful yet wry approach to design has earned them notice; this year they were nominated for Wallpaper’s Furniture Designer of the Year award (Konstantin Grcic took the prize). The group has collaborated with several leading design firms; the Link Lamp, shown below, was produced in conjunction with new French design firm Moustache. Contact Moustache directly for purchasing details.
