Pauline Deltour was born in 1983, in Landerneau, France. She graduated ENSAD (Ecole Nationale Supérieur des Arts Décoratifs) in 2007 and has worked for 4 years for Konstantin Grcic in Munich, Germany. She has opened her very own studio in Paris in 2010.
Distinguished by being both severe and delicate, its designs reflect a vocabulary which is characteristic of her own personality. Her precise hand, neat lines, carefully selected materials and colour ranges, and the way in which they come together, form the individual identity of this young French designer's work. Emblematic, hard-hitting seduction is achieved through rare qualities which are as elemental to the design as they are challenging to implement. Expanding her focus, Pauline is now exploring possibilities on every scale, from small individual pieces right through to complete interior architecture.
Pauline Deltour pulls out from the materials and their properties, prime inspirational sources, to explore shapes in which sturdiness and usefulness as well as poetry and sensitivity mingle. An iron fist in a velvet glove is how she drives all the projects she is working on, which are ranging from tableware to furniture through public and private spaces layout. An exigency that extend to her choice of professional encounters: the French Post (Yellow Innovation), Cire Trudon, Lexon, Alessi, COR, MUJI, HEM, AMes, Kvadrat, JapanCreative, Arita 2016 (Japan), Fucina...
Her work is awarded by a Red Dot Design Award for the Lexon Fine Bluetooth Speaker and she was listed in Wallpaper magazine's list power 200.
Since March 2011, she collaborates with Gwenaëlle Girard as EN BANDE ORGANISÉE on various architectural projects (interior architecture & set design) and launched a jewelry boutique in Paris, and a hotel in Lille.
On 10 September 2021, at just 38 years old, she died suddenly and unexpectedly.
