environmental designer, redecorator, scenographer

Hilton Mc Connico was born in Memphis, Tennessee in 1943. He is a man of many talents: painter, decorator, photographer, scenographer, designer and film maker. After setting up in Paris in 1965 he designed for several famous Parisian fashion houses before moving into set design for motion pictures. He did the sets for such well-known movies as "Diva" and "La lune dans le caniveau" by Jean-Jacques Beinex (the latter won the César for Best Décor at Cannes in 1983), ’Vivement dimanche" by François Truffaut, and twenty or so others.
Mc Connico’s rich imagination is steeped in magic and poetry, the same qualities we see in the objects he designs for our daily environment. Many of his creations (like the Cactus collection for Daum, or his rugs for Toulemonde Bochart)are now part of the standing collections of famous museums all over the world. His exhibition design, in particular for the French label Hermès, has earned him the reputation of being one of the most gifted all-round artists of his generation.
