Xavier developed this 3-dimensional approach by going to the École supérieure d’art appliqué textile (ESAAT) in Lille where he mastered textile creation and furthered his sensitivity to colors and materials. For his graduate project he designed the costumes for Alice in Wonderland that got him noticed by the director of the Radio France Opera festival.
The Xavier Dohr Studio grew and the company is still remains independent to keep up with its quality and aesthetic goals. Special projects were made for clients and appeared in many magazines. The Veronese Company commissioned Xavier to create a chandelier made in Murano by their own glass blowers. One of them is displayed in Carla Bruni’s elegant Parisian home in the 16th arrondissement of Paris. Xavier’s chairs, are enjoyed in many places, including Bernard Arnault’s dining room in Paris and London. Media shy like many creatives, Xavier prefers to let his work speak for itself. "The confrontation of materials colors and proportions is key to my work without over accentuating or dramatizing. Nothing should in the end compromise the comfort of using them. A very good cake tastes better than an over-decorated one with a dull flavor", he concludes.
AVENUE ROAD carries a curated assortment of Xavier Dohr pieces.
