After starting his career in Christian Liaigre’s office, Damien was hired by the German fabric company, Zimmer + Rohde, to create an in-house furniture collection. In 2003, he set up his own firm and has since worked on a wide range of projects including offices, showrooms, and several high-end residential commissions. Among his works are a house in Saint-Tropez, a former artist’s atelier in Montparnasse, a flat in Megève, and a 250m2 apartment on Paris’s exclusive Avenue Foch. With each new project, Damien's aim is to not impose a style. Instead, he imagines schemes that are finely adapted to the specific space, as well as to the needs and desires of each client.
For Langlois-Meurinne, quality is of the utmost importance. He works with the best French craftsmen to produce pieces that are made strictly to order. He favors the use of noble materials, such as linen, lacquer, bronze, and solid woods (oak, walnut, sycamore, sipo). Furthermore, he believes in creating objects, which do more than simply fulfill a function. They also have an intrinsic aesthetic value. A Langlois-Meurinne mirror is not simply a mirror- it is also a sculptural object. “A successful design,” he says, “is one that is endowed with a touch of poetry, freedom, and fantasy.”
Damien Langlois-Meurinne’s work has been featured in a number of French and international publications. Some press coverage includes AD Allemagne, AD Espagne, Elle Déco Japon, Decoration Allemagne, Eigenhuis Pays-Bas, Home Decor Singapour, Résidences France, Numéro France, Elle Décor France.
