CONSTANCE GUISSET LUC JOZANCY REMI CASADO
Born in 1976, and living and working in Paris, Constance Guisset is a french designer with an original career path.

After studying business and economics at ESSEC and IEP Paris, followed by a year at the parliament of tokyo, she decided to turn her hand to design. Having obtained her diploma from enSci – Les ateliers in 2007, she quickly earned recognition from a variety of sources, including the Grand Prix de design de la Ville de Paris in 2008, the Public Prize at the design Parade de la Villa noailles in 2009, and the title of designer of the Year at the now! design à Vivre and the audi talents award in 2010.

Constance Guisset set up her own studio in 2007 and numerous projects took shape with Petite friture, Via, Molteni, Moustache, Louis Vuitton malletier, Pallucco, Nodus, Fontanaarte, Matière Grise and others.

Her creativity finds many different outlets, including stage sets, the design of objects and videos.

Her work revolves around a philosophy of visual illusion and surprise. She devotes her time to the creation of light, lively objects whose elegant fluidity may arouse a feeling of surprise and be a springboard for a moment’s daydreaming.

Constance Guisset is currently working on the creation of a new interior design concept for the Accor-Suite Novotel hotel group, as well as numerous items for italian publishers and luxury french homes..

Luc Jozancy was born in auvergne in 1960. Having spent his childhood in this unspoiled country setting, he then undertook a series of courses with creativity as their common denominator: ESAG Penninghen, Beaux arts de Bourges and ENSAD Paris, where he obtained his diploma in industrial design in 1985 under the guidance of Roger Tallon.

Even as a student, he very soon came into contact with industry, with many of his prize-winning study projects catching the eye of businesses such as Lumen center, Le Printemps, Mulca and others, and subsequently being developed.

Having been spotted by a professor, he joined his agency Solus as industrial designer, working with companies from vastly different fields, among them Danone, Yves Saint Laurent, Nathan and Plastic Omnium.

It was during his time at this agency that he met eric Rhinn with whom he was to set up the Avant-Premiere design studio in Lyon in 1988.

The foundation for a user-focused design philosophy was laid, its guiding principles clarity and simplicity in the perception of the object.

Year after year, the avant Première studio forged special bonds with the major industrial players: Groupe Seb, Dynastar, Alstom and Boiron, to name but a few.

Today, Luc Jozancy, designer, associate director and Head of avant Première’s Product design department, sees research and development and design as the core values for innovation.

MG has been working with avant Première in the field of design since 2005..
