The founders of BIG-GAME chose to study design because they wanted to create objects that would become part of people’s daily lives. Almost 20 years after founding the studio, transforming an idea into a product is still the most exciting part of their work. Design is not a hard science, there is no right or wrong. There are many ways to get from an idea to a finished product. Sometimes they take inspiration from unusual places and use their own methods to create models and prototypes.
Augustin Scott de Martinville, Grégoire Jeanmonod and Elric Petit are BIG-GAME. The studio describes its work as simple, functional and optimistic. It produces a variety of products and accessories for companies such as Alessi, Hay, Karimoku New Standard, Muji, Magis or Muuto. BIG-GAME’s work is often accessible, charming and, above all, useful.
The studio has received numerous awards including the Swiss Design Award, the iF design award, the Wallpaper Design Award, the Good Design Award, the Hublot Design Award and Design Preis Schweiz. BIG-GAME’s works are part of the collections of the Museum fur Gestaltung, the Vitra Design Museum, the Centre Georges Pompidou as well as the MoMA.The studio is based in Lausanne, Switzerland. In addition to their design work, the three founders of BIG-GAME also serve as professors at ECAL / University of Arts and Design Lausanne.
