Virgile and Joséphine bridge together aspects of contemporary thinking with a rational approach of product industrialisation and communication.Through self-initiated projects, collaborations or private commissions, Thévoz—Choquet embrace all aspects of product design development from initial investigation of an idea to complete creative solutions including photography and art direction. During their masters at ECAL, Joséphine and Virgile get accustomed to the luxury industry, from its relationship to craftsmanship to the evolving standards of branding strategies. Their common conception of work and complementary personalities encourage them to work together on projects ranging from bespoke sunglasses to complete collections that they will showcase internationally. Their work emphasises simple shapes, material diversity and their use in specific contexts.
