Guillaume Delvigne imagined for Pierre Frey three hand drawings transcripted into hand-tufted rugs. Original and unique in shape, they are a clever play of texture between a wool loop pile and a cut pile made with an other fiber.
The rugs are a continuation of the furniture collection. They add a poetic dimension to the furniture and create a friendly environment.
Even if the spirit of the design is the same for the three rugs, simulating the pencil strokes on a sheet of paper by using a soft and shiny silk velvet or drier and more rustic wool loops, totally modifies the aspect and brings very different visual effects. Furniture and rugs reflect exactly the spirit Guillaume Delvigne had imagined giving to this collection. The products encourage a relaxed and friendly attitude.
A designer who graduated in 2002 from the Nantes Atlantique School of Design, Guillaume Delvigne began his career between Milan and Paris, working with big names such as George Sowden, co-founder of the Memphis movement, and Marc Newson, a star of contemporary design. In 2011 he launches a solo show, inaugurates his first solo exhibition at the ToolsGalerie and wins the Grand Prix de la Création de la Ville de Paris. Today he works with craftsmens, publishers or industrialists mainly in the fields of furniture, objects and lighting. His clients are major French and foreign companies or younger publishers (Hermès, Frandsen, Hanoia, Lexon, La Chance, ENO studio, Hartô...).
Guillaume Delvigne is an illustrator. His highly sensitive work is influenced by photography, architecture and more generally by everything visual. He is looking for the perfect balance, his paw is soft and uncluttered while being extremely rigorous, his sense of detail is very strong.
