Olivier Droillard worked in upholstery and textiles before debuting as a designer at Hidden Art’s award-winning stand at 100% Design in September 2005. He also exhibited at the Chelsea Crafts Fair in October 2005 where he received an Elle Decoration Future Classic Award.
Characterised by an elegant and sometimes striking use of colours, his Tables and Wall hangings are made up of a modular system of boxes that can perform various functions.
Exploring the ideas of collecting, finding and surprise, they invite us to recognise the critical contribution emotion makes to our response to a form or space.
