This French company (based in Paris) was born of the necessity to give different looks to television sets. This appliance is part of every home but often lacks grace, calling for the need to create a more stylish design, one that harmonizes with the rest of the items in any elegant home.
The idea came from interior designer Julien Dayet and designers Guillaume Suety and Aurélien Blanc. The three shared the same objective: to create a high-end TV inspired by the “pop” years, entirely made in France by artisans with exceptional skill. The result is a piece that not only looks modern, but is a fully customizable product with an unprecedented design that successfully combines retro style, modernity and distinction.
More than 90% of the components of the Hipolite TVs come from France, making each of these appliances an interesting example of French haute couture applied to industrial design. The wood used for the structure of the TV sets come from ecologically sustainable forests in France. Everything is done by hand, even the lacquer is applied by the delicate hands of expert cabinetmakers. The speakers are designed and manufactured by a French company, as well as the glass, aluminum and leather finishes. The screen and other electronic components are imported and then assembled in French workshops.
To meet the discerning demands of its high-end clientele, a customized service is available and includes unlimited possibilities. Hipolite can produce unique models and designs according to your specifications, including custom colors, materials, finishes and dimensions.
