Our Business department supports companies and young creators to develop their businesses and positioning, through personalised advice and coaching
PaulinePlusLuis is a design studio based in Brussels, created by Pauline Capdo and Luis Bellenger. As specialists in interior design and lighting, they won the MAD Suprize! Young Belgian Design Awards shortly after their creation in 2015. It was the start of an intensive and growing parcours followed by MAD.
In 2017 they were part of the BOOST program under the mentorship of MAD expert Nedda El Asmar. And thanks to the Move On financial support of MAD, they were able to participate at the Design Parade 12 at Villa Noailles – Hyères, update their lookbook, and do some international prospection in Stockholm, Köln and Paris.
Their multiple participations at MAD’s Designers to Business (D2B) event also initiated an interesting collaboration with the British company Hayche in 2018. They started collaborating on a chair design, the Dune-chair, an eye-catching bistro-chair with a minimalist design. And one cola led to another, as they edited the Doric table in collaboration with XLBoom, the Cravache lamp in collaboration with Serax and Memory on Paper lamp in collaboration with Habitat.
