After spending his childhood in the eternal (and holy) city of Rome, Marc Ange started his design career working for some of the big names in the Italian auto industry. When opening his own design studio in Paris, Bloom Room, Marc Ange started creating his designs driven by his blurred childhood memories, always swinging from real to surreal and back. Soon, Paris wasn’t enough; Marc Ange opened his second Bloom Room offices in Los Angeles, pursuing his fantastic imaginary journey to the West Coast.
The taste for beauty, perfection and harmony; a clear penchant for surrealism and the proliferation of fantastic streaks in all of his creations, including a stunning cradle he designed for Louis Vuitton, and the ultra-desirable Chimère collection imagined for aesthete pets.
When working for some high-end luxury brands in the likes of Louis Vuitton, Moët & Chandon, Jean-Paul Gaultier, Marc Ange enjoys breaking the rules and mixing beauty with horror, harmony with chaos…
Le Refuge or “The Imaginary World of Marc Ange”, the creation presented by The Invisible Collection in collaboration with the Green Gallery at the Milan Salone in 2017. Unveiled in the Wallpaper* Handmade exhibition space at the Mediateca di Santa Teresa’s garden, “Le Refuge is the projection of a childhood memory, says Marc Ange. Its large leaves form a shelter under the sun, away from reality, just like those of the imaginary jungle that grows in the room of a child who seeks escape”
The Invisible Collection won the Wallpaper* Award for the most instagrammed design with Le Refuge.
