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-Ligne Roset, Muuto, Bernard Chauveau, Manganèse Editions, CIAV Meisenthal, Cristallerie Saint-Louis,…
