ORMOND EDITIONS

FRÉDERIC ORMOND FOUNDED HIS COMPANY IN 2008, ON VALUES THAT HE UPHOLDS IN FURNITURE AND LIGHTING COLLECTIONS THAT PLAY ON HISTORICAL REFERENCES AND CONTEMPORARY LINES, ELEGANCE AND COMFORT, ATTENTION TO DETAIL AND A FOCUS ON MATERIALITY.

Some would say it is thanks to his dual French-Swiss culture that he has been able to forge the identity of Ormond Editions, a combination of Swiss discipline and French creativity: both values run through all his collections. But also built into the Ormond Editions DNA is Frédéric Ormond’s experience. This trained auctioneer, elegant art lover and collector of 20th century design also represents eminent contemporary designers including Lindsey Adelman, Apparatus, Christophe Delcourt and Stéphane Parmentier. A glance at the Ormond Editions talent stable reveals names such as Garnier & Linker, Francesco Balzano and Glenn Sestig. A generation of brilliant designers hand-picked to create a contemporary luxury. At Ormond Editions, they have all been able to develop furniture with a bold materiality, using time-tested savoir-faire. Fascinated by the “low- tech” side of craftsmanship, Frédéric Ormond celebrates the spirituality of these materials, and the ability of the best French artisans to amplify their vibrancy. The Ormond Editions collection adds a contemporary brilliance to the great tradition of French furniture making. Praised by leading interior designers and architects, the collection will soon be on show in the new Ormond Editions showroom located on the bank of Lake Geneva.
