Olivier Lellouche


Olivier Lellouche is a Franco-Finnish designer born in Stockholm in 1981. After graduating from Ecole Camondo, working for Shigeru Ban for the new Pompidou Center in Metz and assisting Jerszy Seymour in Berlin, he established his studio in Paris in 2010 with a clear motto:
Fun, Machines & Nature.

Since then, the challenge raised by each project has been to be surprised by its own practice by echoing the role of industry and its modernity facing the exigency of a gesture, contemporary or ancestral, which produces an object. In this sense, he founded De Stihl with Olivier Lebrun in 2011, an experimental and introspective drift on the world of design. His work is part of the CNAP collection and has been regularly exhibited in France and abroad.

This questioning around drawing and tools gradually led Olivier to intervene in different schools for conferences: Detroit & Neverland at the Ecole Européenne Supérieur d’Art de Bretagne de Quimper and at the Karlsruhe University of Arts and Design, Enzo Mari e Ugo Mari – his hidden brother – at the Ecole Supérieure d’Art et de Design in Angers and at the Beaux-Arts in Paris, and workshops: Man Machine at ENSCI, Jantar Mantar at the Institut Supérieur des Beaux-Arts of Besançon, Myth at the Cranbrook Academy of Arts in Detroit, De Stihl Records at the Sandberg Instituut in Amsterdam, Villa Romaine with Ecole Camondo in Toulon, HEAD and Villa Noailles.

In 2017, Olivier took over the coordination of the space section of the Ecole Supérieure d’Art et de Design de Saint Etienne, a hybrid sector between art and design, where with his students he imagined Stefania, the mirage of a city for the 2019 International Design Biennale. A city focused on care, with its parallel economy, its football club, its pollution, its nightclub and its factory, its weddings, its restaurant, its strikes, its school…

Since 2019, Oliver has been teaching design and space at Ecole Nationale des Arts Décoratifs in Paris.

In 2022, he was appointed director of studies at Campus Ma.Na.
