In 2003, the LVMH group called on him to take over the artistic direction of the Jardin d'Acclimatation in Paris. His passion-fusion with China, inspires him the enchanting Palais des thés, a small Beijing enclave in the heart of the garden. For the French Company of the Orient and of China, Hippolyte reinvents the “Chinese Tales under the Moon” inspired by the Tao. This theme is illustrated through a bestiary composed of seven symbolic animals: the unicorn, the turtle, the phoenix, the dragon, the eagle, the dragonfly and the bull.
A little detour through the cinema, and here he is "taking a bite" on the sets of the directors, Robert Altman for the film "Prêt à Porter" and Patrice Lecomte for "Ridicule", then he creates the "Petit Cirque Elégant" by s' inspiring company theaters of the XVIII ° century, of which it is based in Richelieu in France!
But his appetite to create did not stop there, his work in tableware and decorative arts led him to create a porcelain and celadon service for a Grande Maison in Limoges, entitled “Marquises et Mandarins”.

And because the world of childhood is never very far with Hippolyte Romain, he invents a micro table service for children. Enough to invent wonderful birthday snacks ...
In 2018, the owners of the Hôtel de Berri, (a Palace located at 18-22 rue de Berri in Paris 8th arrondissement, very close to the Champs-Elysées) commissioned him to decorate the restaurant "le Schiap" in homage to Elsa Schiaparelli whose the mansion was located at the location of Hotel. Taking up his Parisian vocabulary, Hippolyte covers the walls of the restaurant with an imposing fresco which tells us all about Paris from the Roaring Twenties to the Roaring Twenties of the City of Light! The result is breathtaking and makes it the venue for today's Parisian meetings.
