Brand history and environment

EVVO, an innovative young brand founded near Mount Pilat in Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes already awarded one Observeur du Design Star!

The name EVVO is a portmanteau scrunching “evolution” with the local dialect word “avvo” meaning “forge ahead, come with me”. The firm was founded in 2017, in Bourg-Argental, by Hervé Piron and Joel Varaine, both managers at local firm MPI, specialising in plastic injection moulding, with an enthusiastic sporting goods designer, Oliver Reboullet. Together, they decided to pool the skills and expertise of their staff to provide outdoor sports enthusiasts with innovative, intuitive solutions.

EVVO has taken up its first challenge, in snowshoeing, with the design of a revolutionary snowshoe, manufactured in the Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes region and developed in collaboration with Michelin. EVVO Snowshoes received the Observeur du Design label in 2019.
