We began to work together in 2007 and we create the atelier Blain-Dixneuf. We are two designers, Grégory Blain and Hervé Dixneuf. We are Graduated from the ESAD of Saint-Etienne.
Our projects come from many influences and are in the pursuit of an harmony between the form and the function. We don’t realy work in a definited way, projects born because of the lack of something, the desire to test a material, to explore new use, to revisit objects or to draw them in another way. Our objects forgot the superfluous, we try to fid a solution in a détail, our objectives are to stay in a simplicity and in the right form. Our duet allow us to confront our points of view and to learn the exchange. We orient our reflection in a pragmatic way to create singular objects, which are useful and surprising.
We were finalist of « bourse Agora » in 2007. In 2008, we won the « Concours révélateur de talents » Cinna, in the décoration objects category with « La niche ». Selected for the Design Parade festival, at Villa Noailles in 2009.
Today we continue our activity in developping new projects for brands, company’s and design editor like Cinna, Saint-Louis, Bernard Chauveau, Manganèse Editions…
