Vincent Dupont-Rougier initially studied art history. Passionate about design, he began working as a self-taught designer before joining the Arts Décoratifs de Paris. In 2000, he was a resident for a year at the Académie de France in Rome.
Vincent Dupont-Rougier's double vision, both curious about heritage and turned towards the avant-garde, determines his highly diversified career: at times a designer, scenographer and interior architect, he is also a designer of urban development, terraces and gardens. This creative jack-of-all-trades is particularly sensitive to the notion of narrative and the materials he chooses.
The design of the HILT sofa, armchair and coffee table is developed around legs carved from solid oak. These solid supports echo the stylised hieraticism of Art Deco furniture and architecture.
The sculptural appearance of the legs is expressed in volumes with a faceted appearance whose rigorous lines contrast with a soft comfort.
