Each year, Maison et Objet Paris distinguishes one of the most influential names in the design world as the Designer of the Year. This time around, they will be honoring the work of Belgium designer, Ramy Fischler. With the leading lifestyle and design event coming at full speed, today, Paris Design Agenda will explore a bit more of the designer’s work and background, so take a look.
In his work, Ramy Fischler doesn’t like to repeat himself and his designs have to make sense. After concluding his design studies at ENSCILes Ateliers in Paris in 2004, he then went to work with Patrick Jouin. It was there he started to explore all expressions of design until he founded his own studio in 2011.
Fischler enjoys questioning the value of a function, he follows various steps in his creative process to achieve the final result, including anticipating tomorrow’s behaviors, defining the reason and use of each project and visualising the environment where a piece would be effective.
His work is heavily influenced by cinema. He practices design in much the same way a director makes a film. Fiction and collaborative work are the twin pillars of his process. His interior design projects for private residences and restaurants regularly give him the opportunity to design furniture. Furthermore, he also creates hybrid objects that illustrate his capacity to blur the boundaries between disciplines.
Now, take a look at this gallery featuring some of the most fascinating design projects from this edition’s Designer of the Year, that range from showrooms to office designs as well as restaurants and private residences:
The designer is also currently working on massive projects, such as the Cinema Paradiso Mk2, NAKED! Food Market, Philanthro-Lab and Pulse office building. In September, Ramy Fischler will give the spotlight to the diversity of his studio’s activities and projects from day to day, offering visitors a chance to grasp his visionary and holistic approach, so don’t miss this opportunity to know more about his work.
