Competing Projects 2022
In 1999, François-Xavier Richard created the Atelier d’Offard, a wallpaper factory using traditional block printing techniques. He revived these exceptional skills to reproduce vanished wallpapers and offer contemporary creations based on paper.
In 2021, his children and a close friend from the creative field, join him to develop the publishing house D’OFFARD, a design studio that publishes its own creations. D’OFFARD publishes a collection of hand-blocked dominos. The dominoterie is a craft technique of the XVIIIth century of printing with the plate of sheets of papers. We have chosen to work with the Fedrigonni paper collection for the richness of the colors and the contemporary aspect that play with subtlety with the shine of oil paint. D’OFFARD is a family adventure, a brand that cultivates the beautiful, seeking to shape it constantly by the intelligence of the hand.
