Olivier Dollé is an architect and designer born in the Alpes region in the South of France and who studied at the prestigious art institute École Boulle in Paris. Combining his appreciation for traditional handcraftsmanship and his love of contemporary design, Dollé has created interiors as well as furniture and accessories that are made from the highest quality woods and other materials using the latest technology.
His varied works include such innovative pieces as clean-lined tables and angular chair that are crafted from solid oak and a buffet that is made of American walnut veneer. A constant visual element that is repeated in his furniture designs is a branchlike motif, which is most apparent in his wall shelving and dining table and desk. In addition to furniture, Dollé also creates inventive modern lighting as well as urban interior spaces with artisanal touches that emphasize traditional craft.
Needless to say, Dollé has garnered much attention with his versatility designs and wide-ranging works, which has resulted in numerous exhibitions including the recent Maison & Objet trade show in Paris.
His whimsical dining table featuring a unique treelike motif also won the 2010 Creators Competition of Paris award, and in 2009 he was the winner of the Young Creators Competition held by the Atelier d’Art de France magazine. Furthermore, his works have been touted by well-known publications like Elle Décoration in France as well as the French version of AD.
