A cultural collector, Christian Astuguevieille creates designs inspired by the diverse influences he curates from different eras, geographies and civilizations, both historical and imagined. A highly sensual artist, Astuguevieille’s work – jewelry, perfume, objects, textiles, rugs, furniture – carries an alluring air of mystery. His collection for HOLLY HUNT participates in one of our favorite traditions: it’s so masterfully crafted that the rich complexities are distilled into a shape that one experiences as purely simple and true. This manifests in Astuguevieille’s signature forms, wrapped in rope. The tactile textures and patina featured in his pieces provide a beautiful counterpoint to signature HOLLY HUNT clean, contemporary designs. His playful work naturally invites people to see spaces and objects in new ways.
