Aïssa Logerot, former student from cabinetmaking formation at École Boulle and graduated from ENSCI, creates design pieces whose watchword is simplicity. By combining traditional skills and industrial design, he creates objects with essential lines that respond to a functional aesthetic and to a reasoned use of materials. Aïssa says about this:
“As a designer, I do not conceive a particular aesthetic ideal, I especially appreciate the simplicity of forms reflecting the evidence of a function, of a use”.
More broadly, his work raises questions on eco-design and the links that may exist between design and artcraft. Main project of his work at ENSCI, the range of furniture Extensions integrates and testifies the design philosophy that defends the young artist. This project enabled Aïssa to get the Reddot Award 2009 before his nomination for Audi Talents Awards. Aïssa Logerot also won the 2010 Cinna competition with his light Lamp Posh. He was recently awarded the Grand Prize for Creation of the City of Paris 2010, in young designer category, which rewards all of his work.
Aïssa Logerot continues to develop his personal projects and works in parallel with some design agencies.
