Originally from Buenos Aires, Lorena is a San Francisco based designer, artist and author. Lorena has written and illustrated over 20 books for children with Chronicle Books, Templar UK, and Candlewick Press. She started Petit Collage in 2006. With her team of designers, she creates modern wall décor and home accessories influenced by midcentury design. The studio, located in an artistic hub of San Francisco, is an incubator of new ideas, art, and illustration where creating great design and pushing the envelope on new formats is the norm.
Playfulness imbues every format Petit Collage touches from mobiles and mirrors to dolls, decals and more. Striving to handcraft their goods in a sustainable way using the best-quality, most forest-friendly materials available is equally important. Lorena’s pattern designs show up throughout her work and are particularly playful as packaging tape, shown below.
Lorena has created a wonderful niche, as her products are playful and approachable for children while still sophisticated enough to fit any room of a modern house. Petit Collage products are sold at over 500 stores worldwide including Pottery Barn Kids, Land of Nod and Giggle.
Please join us on August 30th to meet Lorena in person. As a very special added bonus, Lorena is creating gift bags for the first 30 attendees – which will include a signed San Francisco print on wood and some of her patterned packing tape! Please RSVP here
