Dorian Étienne

Dorian Étienne

Born: 1996

Hometown: Le Mans

Based in: Paris

Independant designer based in Paris, Dorian Étienne combines in his work crafts and industry throught a humanist and eco-friendly design approach.

Anchored in near or distant territories, he observes cultures and histories, techniques and materials. The richness of the world's cultural heritages inspires him throughout his work. Following this lead thread, braided of Human and Nature, he creates sensible and sensitive products : “objets métissés”.

Furthermore, experimentation is at the heart of his creation. The new features of the material are his library of ideas ; then he invents new uses.

Fundamentally his approach is respectful of the environment and humans.

More About Dorian Étienne

IconInspires

What inspires you?

The raw material of creation is the world around us. We take inspiration from our experiences, from what makes us vibrate internally. Whatever the place or the moment I always have in a part of my head a different look on things, a kind of continual questioning. Thoughts intersect and generate intuitions. Then remains the hard step... sort it out!

IconCreative

Describe your creative process.

For me, the designer's mission is to make people dream ; to bring them, by the object, into a mood, a culture, a special context, while improving its usefulness. It could be summed up in one sentence: " Show me how the world can be beautiful ".

IconMagnifying

What are 3 words that best describe your work?

Métissage, World Territories, Sustainable

IconUser

Who are some artists that have influenced your work?

Charlotte Perriand, Bruno Munari, Leonardo da Vinci, ...

IconTool

What is the most important tool when creating your work?

My work tools are immaterial : ideas, open-mindedness, and a particular attention of my environment.

IconGive

What is the best piece of advice you have been given?

Follow your dreams by being in agreement with yourself, with your own values. Keep your child's mind to marvel at everything because this wonder is conducive to brilliant ideas and projects, as well as amazing encounters.

IconLightbulb

Where do you go for inspiration?

The raw material of creation is the world around us. Thus I take my inspiration from my environment.
