Life 

For someone looking to start a career in modern luxury interiors, working with Christian Liaigre is probably the best place one could dream. During his three years working with Liaigre, Damien Langlois-Meurinne became familiar with the rigour of proportions and qualities of noble materials. He worked on high-end interiors for projects such as yachts, houses in Notting Hill and Megève, boutiques in New York, a private island in Polynesia, contemporary Parisian apartments and an upscale spa in China. After starting his career in with Christian Liaigre, he was hired by the German fabric company Zimmer + Rohde to create an in-house furniture collection. In 2003, he set up his firm, Agence D.L.M., and has since worked on a wide range of projects while also designing collection of furniture for Sé London and the French metal couturier Pouenat.

Inspiration

In creating the first collection of furniture for Sé London, Damien Langlois-Meurinne was able to reveal Sé unique identity while expressing his signature style. Often inspired by constellations and landscapes, he has a keen eye for natural formes, their poetic perfection and their essential truth. From building tree houses in the yards of his childhood home to the colours of the Mediterranean sea, nature is the “starting point” of every project he does. Natural references put functionality into perspective, reconnecting the purpose of an object to the emotional need of its original creation. Like the Happiness armchair for Sé London and the state of intimacy that it provides. Probably the same feeling of sitting in a garden nook, while surrounded by blooming trees in the springtime.

Style 

His style is characterised by timeless lines, a mix of sophistication and simplicity. His work has a communicative quality, as you’d expect from a designer who wants to ‘give objects a soul’ and a sense of personality. As Langlois-Meurinne says: “A successful design is one that is endowed with a touch of poetry, freedom and fantasy”. An emotional dimension that comes through by giving the prime position to the quality and the making of every object. He favours the use of noble materials, such as linen, lacquer, bronze and solid woods (like Oak, Walnut, Sycamore and Sipo Mahogany). All of which have been crafted in collaboration with the finest master artisans: “For me, the intervention of the artisan’s hand is decisive. It undeniably gives an object a soul.”

 

Uniqueness 

Damien Langlois-Meurinne has the sensibility of a soul-reader developing projects which can unveil the glamorous side of a brand or a client. When he designed the Sé London’s debut collection, he was able to capture the allure of the brand creating objects which are lyrical, intense and sculptural – like the Ooh La La console table – and with a tantalising echo of the furniture of the 1920s and 30s, chiming perfectly with Sé’s aesthetic mandate.

造灵感
