Behind Omy Design & Play are two Parisian graphic designers, Elvire Laurent & Marie-Cerise Lichtlé.
They share the same artistic sensibility and passion for design, and after graduating together from the L’école des Beaux-Arts in Paris, they decided to open their own graphic arts studio.
In 2012, having both recently become mothers, they felt the need to change their approach to design. The logical step was to develop their own line of products, this first collection was born out of that desire and enthusiasm to create. They imagined a new creative concept in an unexpected format, which today has become their classic… the giant colouring roll.
Omy Design & Play creates and designs joyful, graphic and smart products for the entire family. Decorating becomes a game, a moment where friends and family can create and share together. Each product can be easily recognised by the surprising sizes – from tiny to giant, bright colours and fun sense of humour.
All Omy products are imagined and designed with love in the Paris studio, where special care is taken when selecting all of the materials and the originality of each new item. 85% of which are then produced and stored only a few miles away from the studio, to ensure a lower impact on the environment and to support the local economy. These are values that are dear to the brand and the social impact is calculated with each new product produced.
