océane delain

Originally from Bayeaux, France, Océane Delain lives and works in Paris as a designer and scenographer for le FabShop, a firm specializing in digital fabrication.

Delain was awarded 1st place in the 2010 Adream competition for her Aura standing lamp. Adream, a European architecture and design contest, promotes new product developments with a focus on renewable and ecological materials. Since 2010, Delain has designed for companies such as Roche Bobois, Ikea, Air Serenity, and Efeso.

In 2014, she graduated from Ecole Nationale Supérieure de Création Industrielle where she studied how people co-exist and interact with objects, a focus which led to the initial concept for the Mellow sofa. After receiving a VIA Creation Assistance grant to develop a prototype, Mellow was presented at the VIA Design exhibition at the 2015 Maison & Object. In September 2015, Mellow was the recipient of the Red Dot Award: Design Concept.
