Jacques Hiter: a transmitter of knowledge

Throughout his life, Jacques Hitier was always driven by the intent of sharing his knowledge with aspiring young designers.

  • Specialized Teacher: 1946-1964

  • Director: 1972-1982

About L’École Boulle – School for Fine Arts and Crafts

The École Boulle was founded in 1886 and is named after the cabinetmaker André-Charles Boulle, who is generally considered to be the preeminent artist in the field of marquetry or inlay during the reign of Louis XIV (1643-1715), the Sun King. André-Charles Boulle’s art is today known as “Boulle Work”.
