ANTITHESIS Collection by Mr.&Mr.

Mr.&Mr.

1+1=1. For Mr.&Mr., everything, though separate, can be made into a whole. Mr.&Mr. is comprised of Alexis Lautier and Pierre Talagrand, and is both a creative design studio and an independent editing house. This duo bypasses the conventional design practice by plunging each of their productions into a distinctive fashion which invents our world and recounts theirs. By radically changing the way objects are used, poetising the fabrication processes and using a blend of creative techniques, Mr.&Mr. develops enchanting products which become a living reality in our daily lives.

Cabin Luggage / ANTITHESIS Collection by Mr.&Mr.

Ready to go, Antithesis mixes traditional craft skills with contemporary nomadic techniques to create two versions of a hand bag line that are as traditional and nonconformist as they are natural and petrochemical. Working hand in hand with the craftsmen of Marrakech, Mr.&Mr. deviates from the traditional natural materials commonly used, by creating in contrast, contemporary forms of handbags tailor-made to the highest standards. The design is self-evident with its rugged material made from palm leaves and its smooth leather, derived from calves. The clash between a French fantasised vision and the realism of the North-African expertise is another characteristic feature. Be it a lunch box, a pouch or a piece of carry-on luggage, Antithesis is all about being on the move. “Through Antithesis, we embrace our contradictions between the desire for a better world and individual comfort.” Antithesis brings two territories closer together with the subtle interplay of traditional techniques and a new aesthetic style. In maintaining the sacredness of each gesture, the two designers propose to displace traditions. The watchwords for the Antithesis line are handmade and design, whether it is the soft version, in camel and natural, or the hard, so-called luxury version decorated with gaffer tape, that is, petrochemical and black.

Sun Glasses Upside-down / HIATUS Collection by Mr.&Mr.

Hiatus, the design of gestures and imaginative ideas, brings together a series of objects that are simple-to-use and effective like any haiku. These items diverge from the ordinary art work to establish themselves as trademarks of Mr.&Mr.’s products. Whether for decorative or everyday use, these objects always recount an anecdote voluntarily. They are bound to create a playful and formal fashion statement for the editing house! It’s a set of crazy inventions, displaying a series of creations which combine application notions of copying and pasting, remixing and back to front designs made as a set or as a single item.
