Alexandre Moronnoz Designer

Designers from 67 rue de Paris , Montreuil, France
Born in 1977 in Bourg-en-Bresse, following an applied arts foundation course at ENS Cachan, he went to ENSCI, Les Ateliers, (Ecole Nationale Supérieure de Création Industrielle, Les Ateliers, Paris), from where he graduated in 2003. Since then he has worked as a self-employed designer in Paris. He alternates between research projects, commissions and collaborations, enabling different environments to be explored. - His first collaborations with Delo Lindo, Radi Designers, Elium Studio and Cédric Ragot, led him to alternate work with his own commission and research projects, to develop a contextual design where meetings are an opportunity to invent new object or space proposals together. - The connection between architecture and design in his personal research and his way of envisaging projects, leads him to tackle the object like architecture, where questions of context and environment are integrated with the design. - For him each project is an opportunity to practice an approach to design, through prospective or research projects, or, through commission projects with practical issues which do not prevent new objects from emerging. He worked from 2003 to 2006 on the formulation of new spatial hypotheses for motorways, notably regarding the architecture of tollbooths, around the problems of urban mobility and e-mobility. His urban seat projects are an opportunity to seek out new ways of looking at, grasping and appropriating dynamic space in the street and shared space. This research earned him awards: the Etoile du design in 2009 for the Muscle project developed with Tôlerie Forézienne; the CCC project in 2009 also awarded by the Grand Prix de la Ville de Paris. - By delaying the moment when the shape of an object emerges he harnesses a maximum amount of matter to design in his projects. He attentively undertakes design work, considering the whole of his solutions as active participants in generating the environment.
