• Biography


     

    In order to understand the work of an architect, or a designer, to perceive truly the direction of his line, we have to consider his counterpoint, his perspective line. For Joran Briand, it’s the ocean. If he is now known for his urban inclusions –he has conceived the huge concrete nets on both the Mucem and the Jean-Bouin stadium for Rudy Ricciotti – this young designer, trained at Olivier de Serres and the École Nationale des Arts Décoratifs de Paris, keeps looking for the sea, open waters, the constant flow of waves unfolding. When he designs a jute stool for SaintLuc, the silhouette of a mooring bollard appears. When he initiates the collective exhibition Granit, he contributes with a surfing board, with inclusions of embroidery. Even his concrete bench prototype, designed for Vinci, seems to be spreading towards the swell… It is thusly, inspired by a deep knowledge of architecture, that Joran Briand always questions the object’s dimension. He imprints on his creations a dialogue on a wider scale, one of structure, of buildings, – of space.
