Café ELLE Deco

A theatrical entrance for the Elle Decoration Café at Maison & Objet Paris, the curtain is lifted to reveal a traditional Haussmannian facade. Here we find the familiar moldings, the herringbone parquet floor, the careful alignment and thoughtful symmetry

Cloud Paris


SFL has been designed considering the movement of nature, creeks and streams, rivers and hills. Each shape is created as if it had been eroded by natural forces. The gentle drift of the room and the flow of people extends to the outside world through the wide glass covering all sides of the structure. The room has a feeling of continuity on entering, there are no boundaries to movement. The monumentality of the space adds another quality to it.

Sèvres Cité de la Céramique

Odyssey is a meeting point between French tradition and American innovation. The vase ‘Ly’, which inspired this design, is a 19th century Icon designed by the Manufacture Nationale de Sèvres. Here it is mounted in an oversized version with a floating top of anodised aluminium made by specialist Neal Feay, in California.

Since its origins in 1740, more than 270 years ago, the Manufacture de Sèvres has never ceased to create work in porcelain.  Three centuries of traditional manufacturing joined today by the potential of contemporary design.
