As haute apprenticeships go, few have fared better than the French designer Pauline Deltour. After studying at the tony École Nationale Supérieure des Arts Décoratifs in Paris, she spent the late aughts in Munich working in the office of Konstantin Grcic. By 2009, she had struck out on her own, earning early commissions for Alessi (the A Tempo line of wire baskets) and Muji (a suite of wooden desk accessories). In 2013, Deltour’s multidisciplinary approach to product and installation design has been focused on the Salone Del Mobile furniture fair in Milan.

By 2009, Deltour was commissioned by Alessi to produce the A Tempo line of wire baskets.

She and four other Paris-based designers put on the show Nouvelle Vague, for which Deltour presented new pieces (a mirror, a table, and a clock) and designed the exhibition’s staging. She also debuted an extension to her series of Roulé trays and Tourné bowls for Discipline. Post Salone? Stay tuned, sports fans, Deltour heads back to the red clay of Roland Garros, as she and partner Anne Laure Gautier outfit racquet company Babolat’s booth at the French Open.
