The French Craft Project is not a concept but "a poetic art of life" defined by "nomadic" art objects whose excellence wavers between passion and reason!
These unique pieces are made by the contemporary heirs of 17th and 18th-century French craftsmanship.
Their singularity and outstanding materials combine the “beautiful” with the “useful”, the “exceptional” and the “unusual”.
These art-loving craftsmen and women are among the world's best feather-workers, straw marquetry inlayers, silversmiths, heraldic engravers…
The quintessence of Parisian chic can be found in today's most common and nomadic object, the suitcase! This revolutionary, beautiful, light, extremely elegant ambassador in titanium and carbon will cross the Channel to deliver its treasures in London, including crazy feathers, a rare silversmith's dish with 1950s pictorial accents, a precious box inlaid with gems like a jewel, an incredible silver teapot straight out of a Jules Verne novel, gigantic straw eggs, miniature embossed architecture, a theatre of characters made of enamel clay, contemporary silver and metal thread lace, infinite writing space or Continuum covered with parchment, a collection of performing insects…
The humorous, elegant exhibition is like a modern-day trip through Alice's Wonderland!
Anybody can invent a personal use for these intimate, whimsical, refined art objects. They turn every day into an adventurous journey and any house into a dream home. No talkative objects but visual, tactile, beautiful and unforgettable pieces. Catch the French Craft spirit!
