Design by Hilton McConnico
I want to die from an overdose of life.
All of Hilton McConnico’s whimsy and mischievousness come out in this pop narghile. Exotic and colorful, it is topped off with the traditional chechia or fez.
- metal narghile body
- mother-of-pearl balls
- blown glass
Blessed with an outlandish imagination and handling color better than anyone, Hilton creates a world drenched in magic and poetry in everything
he makes. He is everything all at once: set designer, industrial designer, decorator, graphic artist, painter, photographer, filmmaker—and poet.
As a des
igner he has since 1988 created objects that marry dreams and fantasy, high craftsmanship and industrial expertise. Numerous high-end firms have called on him: Daum, Cristalleries de Saint Louis, Toulemonde Bochart, Lampes Berger, Arthus Bertrand and Lanvin.
Certain of his iconic designs have joined the permanent collections of quite a few museums throughout the world, in particular the Arts Décoratifs in Paris, Oslo, New York and Lausanne.
He has won fame for his narrative scenic work, making him one of the most complete of contemporary artists. For Hermès he designs large-scale exhibitions that have been seen all over the world, including the interior design of the Hermès Museums of Tokyo (architect: Renzo Piano) and Seoul (architect: Réna Dumas).
