WE…

“A cross without Christ is just a simple piece of wood. An object without its legend is nothing. Once it is charged with history, it becomes magical.”
This became both the starting point and the manifesto to our joint journey between objects and image.

The Kuntzel + Deygas tandem is part of the discrete aristocracy of French visual creators whose work is known by the entire world: the opening credits to Steven Spielberg’s Catch me if you can, the iconic La Petite Robe Noire Guerlain character, the MiCha Lamp and the two existential Italian dogs Cap & Pep whose adventures livened up the days of Colette and Vogue Japan. Since 1988 Olivier Kuntzel and Florence Deygas have created characters and objects who live adventures in different worlds: cinema, fashion, luxury and music.

Describing their approach when creating characters, Kuntzel and Deygas remind us that the word “character” also refers to typography, where the assembly of marks, symbols and letters (all characters) are used to convey meaning.

Kuntzel + Deygas invented their very own vocabulary, claiming the simplicity of drawing paired with high technology, luxurious hybridisation at the service of emotion. “Organic creation enhanced by sophisticated technology. Our aim is to make sure we never spoil the charm and innate power of the sketch.

He is a graduate from the Arts Décoratifs of Paris, she studied at Gobelins, Ecole de l’Image in Paris in the animated film section.

LOVE…

“Love is a good engine to run a project.”

Drawings, objects and music revolving around movement and dialogue. Poster-drawings, storyboard inks, anthropomorphic speakers and soundtracks all converse and join together to compose the outline for an imaginary film.
A new story sketched out by Kuntzel + Deygas, articulated with Romain Turzi (music), YA-Atelier (steel work), L’institut sérigraphique (prints), Alp carpets (luxury rugs).

Kuntzel: « these characters… won’t it be funny to organize them as in a model / talent agency? »

Deygas: « you mean, with a photo, size and weight (joking) some trivia and their rank in the business? No way… »
