Ute Wegener & Didier Masquida
When one meets Ute Wegener and Didier Masquida, it is immediately apparent that the two have complementary personalities.
Ute is originally from Germany, and her singular approach focuses on research, inspiration and creation, new trends and their expressions in contempory lifestyle, material and color. Didier is inhabited by the legacy of French interior designers such as Michel Boyer, for whom he worked, who are dedicated to making forms and materials exist in perfect harmony. She focuses on innovation, he searches for elegance; she proposes to contrast contemporary art and tradition, he associates precious woods and marble in a harmonious dialogue. It is in this stimulating vision that the two designers draw energy and creativity.
Each of them, with their own creative universe, challenges the choices of the other. Out of this exchange, projects arise which reconcile the subjective impulse and the objective reality. They have in common the search for excellence and beauty.
