Born in France in 1979, Guillaume Delvigne studied at the Ecole de Design Nantes Atlantique and the Politecnico di Milano. After graduation he starts in Milan at George J. Sowden studio, co founder of the Memphis movement. In parallel he quickly starts to design his own objects, for an italian editor named Industreal. In 2004 he settles in Paris and for a few years he works along-side various renowned designers such as RADI Designers, Delo Lindo, Elium Studio, Marc Newson or Cédric Ragot.
In 2011 he opens his own studio, inaugurates his first personal exhibition at the ToolsGalerie and receives the Grand Prize of the creation of the city of Paris. He leads now a lot of projects for established french and foreign companies such as Hermès, Givenchy, Cristal de Sèvres, Tefal, Habitat, Fabbian, or Frandsen, just as for young editors like La Chance, Hartô or ENOstudio. His designs are regularly exposed during exhibitions in France and abroad and have been awarded or belong to permanent collections.
The idea behind the « Honey » project was to play with the qualities of textured glass and to highlight a nice combination with turned wood. The very simple and symmetrical shape of the glass shade is enriched by the ribs which give all the visual power to the lamp. Those ribs make a reference to classical japanese paper lamps. The challenge was to create a complete collection, from table to pendant lamp, always using the same glass shade. We wanted to get something consistent but with singular interesting pieces at the same time.
