This is summer time, dare summer colours !

Twist plays with perspective and brings the art of trompe-l'oeil to the dining table.

 

A range of vibrant colours twirl happily over ultra-flat plates, creating a 3D-effect table.

 

The latest flight of fancy by Hilton McConnico was designed specially for Raynaud, with the same sophisticated impertinence and love for colour. A cute, quirky illustration of the designer's manifesto-"recovering the world of dreams and fantasy": a dose of positive thinking for fun, smart tables.

 

Born in Memphis, Tennessee in 1943, Hilton McConnico is a painter, interior designer, photographer, creator and set designer.  He has lived and worked in Paris since 1965.  After spending several years working as a fashion designer for some big names in Paris fashion, he turned to cinema, designing sets for around twenty films, including François Truffaut's Vivement Dimanche. In 1983, he won the César award for the best set in La Lune dans le Caniveau, a film by Jean-Jacques Beineix.

With his exceptional talent for colour, Hilton McConnico creates a world full of poetry. His sets have earned him a reputation as one of the most accomplished and creative artists of his time.
