.....An atypical design is what this 28 year-old Frenchman produces, who considers himself as a sculptor rather than a real designer.
His approach is simple :
To his mind, works are far too often intellectualised to suit esoteric tastes, whereas he thinks ’creation should be synonymous with passion’. This is the opposite of what most designers think, for whom ’discourse goes hand in hand from the work’.
Douglas is looking for simplicity, not of form but of content; his motto might be: ’let emotion speak’.

A self-taught artist, he questions the meaning of forms in general, and their relationships to people by interpreting his ’sculpture seats’.
The result is simple work that says something on its own. The anthropomorphism of his creations leaves no one indifferent, and his sculptural furniture, which might easily be described as ’sexual’, is like a sort of natural extension of the human body.
On the border between bio-design and retro-futurism, creations by Douglas catch the eye and invite the caress.
