To fully comprehend the work of an architect or a designer it is necessary to trace its horizon.
To Joran Briand, the horizon is the ocean. The work of this young designer – educated at the Oliver de
Serres and at the Ecole Nationale des Arts Dècoratifs in Paris – is a never-ceasing search for the sea, its continuous flow of waves and spindrift.
At the opening of the collective exhibition Granit, his contribution was a surfboard with embroidered inserts.
The prototype of his cement bench, design for Vinci, seems to surrender to the waves.
That’s how, inspired by his knowledge of architecture, Joran Briand continuously questions the dimensions of the object.
