Julie Conrad, who studied design and craftsmanship in Paris, did an internship in the United States where she discovered self-manufacturing and eco-design. After returning to Europe, she created Julie Conrad Design Studio in 2013. This young designer splits her time between client orders and per
sonal product design projects. She likes to take materials out of their initial context or play with scales as in the iconic Unpaper room divider. Her credo: create a moment of surprise.
Julie Conrad is also involved in collaborations, for example the DONO project (from duerno in Luxembourgish which means after) where she designs objects made of gigantic tarpaulins like those found on the Adolphe Bridge in Luxembourg: knapsacks, bike bags, lampshades …
Julie Conrad will participate in the Luxembourg pavilion at Dubai World Expo in 2020.
JULIE CONRAD DESIGN STUDIO
Interested in the combination of craftsmanship and industrial production, with a penchant for sustainable design solutions, JCDS develops product and furniture collections, as well as graphic design projects. The marriage of material and function, coupled with a story-telling-approach, is at the heart of our creations.
We love the appropriate but unexpected!
Après des études de design et d’artisanat à Paris, Julie Conrad fait un stage aux Etats-Unis où elle découvre l’auto-édition et l’éco-design. De retour en Europe, elle crée Julie Conrad Design Studio en 2013. La jeune designer oscille entre les commandes clients et ses propres projets, axés sur la création d’objets. Elle aime sortir les matières de leur contexte initial ou jouer avec les échelles, à l’instar de son emblématique paravent Unpaper. Son credo : créer un moment de surprise.
Julie Conrad se prête aussi volontiers au jeu du collaboratif et c’est ainsi qu’est né le project DONO (de duerno en luxembourgeois, après en français) au sein duquel elle crée des objets dérivés de bâches gigantesques comme celles du pont Adolphe : sac à dos ou pour le vélo, abat-jour…
Julie Conrad participera au pavillon du Luxembourg lors de la prochaine exposition universelle de Dubai en 2020.
Organised in collaboration with the Institut français, the NO TASTE FOR BAD TASTE exhibition will travel to more than twenty countries, making its mark at key international events in the design and furniture sector.
Additional content such as conferences, round- table discussions, films, interviews,
and more will enhance appreciation of the pieces on show, giving rise to encounters and exchanges fostering the outreach of le French Design. Members of the think tank will be present on several dates and at several destinations, making their own contributions to the event.
The exhibition helps to achieve a twin objective : showcasing the creativity of le French Design and promoting the French furniture industry around the world. An ambitious operation, very much in line with VIA’s professional mission.
The Circular By Design Challenge puts creative minds at the centre of the solution-finding process. Targeting the Luxembourg creative industries sector, its objective is to develop new design solutions and innovative business models that are in line with circular economy principles.
VIA launches Le FD100, a list of 100 designers and interior designers who are sharing Le French Design around the world. This list is not a ranking but rather a photograph of French creation at a given moment: it includes the country’s leading names as well as its most promising profiles and stars of
tomorrow. All convey the essential values of le French Design: art de vivre, creativity and industry, elegance and a touch of luxury, sustainable innovation, audacity, savoir-faire, balance, heritage, cultural openness and panache.
