Objects are interfaces that should be used intuitively and make sense without having to go through too much talking.”

L’atelier [jes] – prononcez « yes » – est l’association créative de Johan Brunel et Samuel Misslen. Nous collaborons depuis 1998 sur une grande variété de projets publics et privés à vocation pédagogique, culturelle ou artistique. Nos projets pourraient se regrouper en deux pratiques principales : la conception et réalisation de mobilier et d’aménagements d’une part, et l’invention d’installations pédagogiques d’exposition d’autre part. Intervenants sur des sujets aux complexités variables, nous collaborons régulièrement avec d’autres artistes, designers, graphistes et architectes.

L’atelier[jes] essaie de créer des objets ou des aménagements chaleureux et accueillants, à échelle humaine, en convoquant autant que possible des matériaux qui vieillissent bien comme le bois, le métal, la céramique…

Atelier [jes] – pronounced “yes” –  is a creative association of Johan Brunel and Samuel Misslen. Since 1998, they have been collaborating on a wide range of projects, from industrial to artistic objects, from interactive educational creations to space design and architecture. Since they are invested both in design and construction, they produce objects that are highly practical to make and use; economy in construction is taken into account during the initial design stage.
