8 February - 10 March 2012

Gallery Libby Sellers was pleased to present the first solo-show in London by Swiss designer Nicolas Le Moigne, which opened 8 February 2012.

Following his graduation in product design from ECAL/University of Art and Design Lausanne in 2007, Le Moigne has gone on to create award-winning designs that can be described as a celebration of juxtaposition. His work in lighting, product and furniture shows an understanding of, and capacity for, complexity and contrast: seemingly fragile yet resilient, at once artisnal yet also industrial, assuredly sophisticated yet without guile.

This equanimity has brought Le Moigne, now a professor at ECAL, to the attention of both industrial companies such as Eternit or Atelier Pfister and design galleries in Paris, Berlin and Mexico. Sellers and Le Moigne have been working to produce new designs since his graduation, however to offer an overview of all his work to date the London exhibition also included limited edition designs commissioned for NextLevel Galerie in Paris and Helmrinderknecht in Berlin. The exhibition included the debut of Le Moigne's 'Leather Slip Stool', alongside jewellery for the Austrian firm A.E.Koechert, seating for Eternit, and a selection from the 'Podium' and 'Materia' collections. 'Public Clock', first made for the City of Geneva in 2006 and which displays the time through words, was also on display.
