Based between Milan and Paris, Episode Studio was created in 2018 by French designers Nathan Baraness and Marina Daguet. The product design studio has a sharp look that runs on curiosity and eclecticism. Both Nathan and Marina find inspiration from old or forgotten objects, memories, colorful antiques, travels, and favorite films. Today we’re taking a look at three of their pieces in greater detail.
A hotel bed is a place for sleep certainly, but when traveling it becomes so much more. Movie theater, desk, library, dining table, and more. Gali is a daybed Episode Studio collaborated on with Swiss brand Elite Bed and ECAL. The fresh interpretation of a hotel’s bed and end bench, you can relax on it or rearrange its large cushions to create a more functional space in any number of configurations.
What would it take for a folding chair to be the most coveted seat at the table? Episode Studio gave it a fresh perspective and new level of comfort with L’Invitée, a chair made of beech wood and cotton canvas. The canvas is stretched over wood bars to create the illusion of a soft cushion, giving L’Invitée a light and comfortable look.
Moun is an outdoor lantern inspired by traditional hurricane lanterns. Episode Studio’s version is more round in shape that’s powered by LED and a battery, giving it the ability to look at home either outdoors or in. Moun can either hang or stand, making it quite the versatile fixture.
