In his early thirties French designer Guillaume Delvigne has conscientiously built an impressive portfolio of work for well established designers spanning furniture, product, and industrial design, over the past decade. Delvigne’s first job fresh from design school was for British industrial designer George Sowden in Milan for two years which was followed by a host of well respected design studios in Paris such as renowned designer Marc Newson on projects for Qantas Airways and Dom Perignon. Freelancing for brands such as Tefal, La Redoute, and Oxyo, he has also been a regular exhibitor at the Milan Furniture Fair since 2004. Winning Wallpaper* Design Awards’ Best Vases in 2009 with Fabbrica del vapore (Steam Factory) vases (top right image above) in collaboration with his contemporary, Ionna Vautrin, Delvigne recently scooped the Grand Prix of Creation from The City of Paris in 2011 and opened his own studio in the same year. This is one hot design talent to keep your eye on for years to come.
