Design lovers and lovers in life, the Canadian designers Félix Guyon and Audrée Larose, have just launched Larose Guyon, a new design studio, based in Verchères, on the outskirts of Montreal. Their first collection, named La Belle Époque, is a range of home decor objects made from copper. Below is a look at their first designs…
A SEDUCTIVE DESIGN
Based in Verchères, on the outskirts of Montreal, Larose Guyon matches the use of choice materials with a great formal purity to create high-end, original, distinctive items; meticulously crafted down to its finest detail.
In 2014, Audrée Larose and Félix Guyon’s paths finally crossed. After progressing for many years on the parallel fields of environmental design and industrial design, today they are two designers in love.
By combining both complementary visions, Larose Guyon provides simple, elegant, functional objects. Through a romantic aestethics of items of blatant luxury, haloed in warmth and humility, they infect daily life with poetry and beauty.
As their approach is imbued with refinement and distinction, they get their inspiration from nature, art, past aeons and traditions. Branded with their love, Larose Guyon products are created, drawn and crafted objects cast in their image with the help of local artisans and their know-how.
“I think we had been looking for each other for a long time. What’s funny is, we actually met at a design event and we clicked at the very moment. We must have been made for each other in our common passion for creation, because since then we never stopped evolving, and it gets better and better. Design is the seed, Larose Guyon becomes our roots and our first collection La Belle Époque is the first bud of a tree that’s merely sprouting!”
