Inspiration : “All I want is to escape from this reality.” Existential questions about the afterlife, the passing of time and the meaning of life are omnipresent subjects in William Guillon’s creative process. OMNIA VANITAS (“Everything is vanity”) is for him a way to explore and experiment around the themes of the emptiness of existence and the impermanence of everything. By creating a set of accessories that he calls Vanities, he invites us to question the place that objects occupy in our lives and the traces we leave on earth.

William Guillon is a French designer based in Bordeaux. He is influenced by powerful artistic universes imbued with a certain modern melancholy. Obsessed with a dystopian futuristic vision, the issues he addresses are charged with this attraction to strong imagery. Beyond his influences, he is driven by a love for noble material, raw material to be worked on, to embellish without altering it. Attaching particular value to French craftsmanship, he designs his works as high quality objects, without ever compromising aesthetics in favor of ease. After a Master 2 of Artistic Director at the ECV of Bordeaux, William Guillon founded his studio from a reflection around black: his interest in luminous objects was born from a desire to sculpt darkness as a material precious, pure that he models with the help of light. Its collections have been hosted in galleries (Galerie Tools Paris 7th) as well as by the design site Kolkhoze and by Bon Marché in its winter 2017/2018 selection. William Guillon creations, handmade in France, are all available in many finishes and materials. William Guillon is now represented in Paris, Madrid, Los Angeles and New York.
