Some years ago at a fair in Paris, I discovered one of the most beautiful brands I ever came across in the furniture industries. Furniture, lights and decoration of such exquisite beauty, i kept thinking of them them.
Joanna Bibby and Harriet Maxwell Macdonald met at an art school in London. Both full of ideas, but yet being independant enough to inspire each other, they started a small design company named "Ochre", debuting at the 100% Design in London 1996. Their underlying principles one still recognises in all their designs: understated elegance, high quality materials and flawless craftsmanship. Solenne de la Fouchardiere crossed their path and became the third partner and fellow designer four years later. In a little less than 20 years, they build up a name in the industry known by the leading international interior designers and architects. With projects in private residences, exclusive hotels and restaurants, clients are being served from their first homebase in London and since 2006 from a second one in New York. I doubted a little while about Munich being the right place to work with such an exclusive, very high end Dame, but finally could not resist. I will! Munich should be big enough too!
Their works are of such pure beauty, making them both timeless and contemporary. Ochre designs are modern collectables, something to fall in love with and never get tired of.
