Victoria Wilmotte was born in 1985 in Paris, where she studied interior design. She later earned her master’s degree in product design at the Royal College of Art in London. After graduating, she returned to her home town of Paris in 2008 and opened her first design studio, where she created designs for the Tools Gallery in Paris and works for her first solo show in 2009 in the Brussels Gallery Pierre Bergé et Associés. Victoria Wilmotte designed collections for a stone products manufacturer, for the online shop Made in Design, for Philips de Pury and Poliform, and repeatedly created individual designs for private customer projects.
Wilmotte’s design process can be compared to that of a sculptor: she weights volumes and empty spaces, removes the material until she finds a perfect angle or ideal curve, and polishes the surfaces to the point when they precisely achieve the structure, haptics and light refraction she seeks.
