Speed Coaching event at MFB
For BDW16, we decided to host a speed coaching event around sustainability. We had experts ranging from health, architecture to business and fashion. The event was free, 10 mins per session. We had so much fun organizing it, and it was so rewarding to see the variety of projects that were being discussed.

Where the magic happens: our studio

It might sound obvious, but we absolutely love our studio. It has been evolving with us, and has been thought of in such a smart way, that it has always managed to adapt to our various phases of growth!

Designed by one of dearest friends, Roula Salamoun studio , it was made in a way to allow for multiple spatial configurations; a way to constantly keep reinventing ourselves, spatially and conceptually.

We host 3 mobile displays (that we call our window displays), which act as “an interactive interface between the studio, its visitors and the street, and can be moved to accommodate for different space configurations.” They give us the opportunity to display ideas, works, clients, projects!
If you feel like invading them, let us know your idea!

Zoom in
La Fille sur le pont/ Patrice Leconte

A poetic journey about love, chance, coincidences. Shot in lustrous black and white, this drama plays on emotions through an unexpected narrative. As we are fans French New Wave movies, we particularly enjoyed all the hints to Godard’s A Bout de Souffle. Also loved getting immersed in the circus life (another hint at a legend: Federico Fellini)
