If your Christmas decorations are starting to smell musty and you are planning on getting some new ones, keep on looking, because this last issue of McommeMaison of the year will be of no help to you and with good reason; Christmas, be it white, gold, or sequined, bores us; less than half of the editorial staff plan on putting up a tree this winter. And since we are not sleigh-riding toy distributors or artificial tree suppliers, we have nothing to gain by it. Don't bother looking for GIF T SPECIAL full-page spreads, you won't find them either. They are, like your decorations, at half-mast, still in the boxes and won't be coming out, at least not this year, next year, if all goes well, we will return our jacket and get back to beaten tracks. That said, so as not to go against tradition, and because this year there are so many lovely things to put on tables and show off to your guests some night at a party, we have concocted a little "Christmas tea party" report designed to whet your appetite. This is how we intend to wrap up the year, talking to you about other things, lamps, steam rooms, High Tech, dressing rooms, talented designers with amazing originality, unknown artists, with Hamish Fulton at the forefront, who is worthy of so many detours, with the hope of charming you and leading you, gently, toward a new Design year.

When Scheherazade has guests… No need for words to take your guests on a journey to the limits of imagination. The table, set with care, narrates the wonders of world you can create to order. You will be free to transport your guests, exactly where you want to... In a winter enchantmen, where the sparkling snow resembles stardust, where nature, as if by magic, carves sumptuous sculptures out of ice... The "Légende d’hiver" collection by Amadeus, will accompany your imagination. Those who dine at this table will be the kings and queens of a world where the snow is soft and romantic.

Magic accompanies each gesture, and each object is chosen with care, acording to the wants and inspirations of the person composing the table, like a lyric epic poem. Contemporary alongside old, materials are combined, to serve a single purpose, making the moment wonderful. The Alès grinders, by Peugeot, sculpted with care from wood that dares to be decorated with metal, bring affluence and grace to a seemingly trivial act. From Jacques Perguay, the glasses offer a drink of devine nectar and the coach awaits on the table, while veils are placed in front of each guest, like a happy omen…

The alchemy of laughter and love… Let's journey to other lands, through the magic of a shared meal, where love and laughter are the most prestigious of spices. The table can arouse a smile, make spirits lighter, through the creativity of the layout and the choice of amusing objects, recalling our childlike nature, awakened by play. From "La Cerise sur le Gâteau ," the palm trees appear to be a composition made in the moment, original, where the teaspoon rests under a balancing egg, and when you remove the spoon, you discover a pattern, just for you. To awaken the slumbe-

ring children in your guests, you can compose a simple table, where joy and love are the main design elements. Sure bets, for a successful gathering, where everyone leaves smiling, remain simple and convivial. Country Casa proposes a classic, bucolic line, evoking warm gettogethers after a stroll out in the cold. Linen, white porcelain, and checked prints tell the tale of reindeer in an evergreen forest, of reunions, and presents. The apron and the hanging hearts recall the main ingredient in successful cooking…

Decorative accessories are, for the table, those little unexpected attentions that make the moment delicious and creative. Once again, you have to dare to seduce your guests and show them, explicitly that you are looking to make them happy...Each little additional touch made to your table will arouse the spirits and will talk about you, your guests, and will unveil a bit of your magic.

Power in the service of freedom… The kitchen's territory is infinitely expanding. The kitchen is no longer a set room in your home, it is opening up to space, to nature. Imagine… river water to grow, trees from the forest to build, gardens and orchards to create, and the immensity of the sky to dream, all within your reach. Because, don't worry, you won't have to deal with the cold or rain, or walk for kilometres, because this is 2013, and you can have all this in absolute comfort, where ergonomics competes with the selection of faultless materials, in the service of your ease and creativity. Strength

and simplicity are the watchwords of this trend, where each element has its place, is essential, promoting movement and the feeling of security, confidence. The kitchen in rough wood and concrete by Pérène, with its solid look, and its pendant lamps and solidly anchored work surfaces, as if integrated in the rock. The work surface in the "Réseau pro" kitchen is a smart, solid combination of rough wood planks. The "Chêne Timber" collection by Cuisinella combines old brushed wood with water-repellant laminate, for an authentic, comfortable result.

The living space… The trend is toward open kitchens. So it's no longer the walls that organise the kitchen space, but the oven, central, a place where all actions occur. Symbolically, the kitchen hearth, or today's oven is a very important part of the home. It is the place where fire transforms. Fire, tamed by man, and which lets us access conscious creation. In the Feng Shui philosophy, the kitchen hearth, or oven, is one of the founding elements of the home. It must be functional, in working order, and highlighted, to promote the capacity for creation and expansion of all residents of the home.

We bet that with these new kitchens, which offer an impeccable, designer, and ultrafunctional oven, you will work miracles… So think carefully about your cooking space, to make it the most attractive part of the kitchen. Aluminium panels from Metal décor, with their designer look, are easy to install, and let you make your kitchen shine like a thousand fires, at a modest cost. The "Gaia galbe" kitchen by Mobalpa is organised around a convivial designer island, all in curves, combining wood with blue lacquer, appealing.

Natural affluence‌ Water, air, wood, and metal are more than represented in this new kitchen. Sublimated by a stylish staging, they offer themselves up to create our kitchen, the one that feeds our loved ones. In 2013, you no longer have to knock about a closet looking for a pan, you no longer have to get water all over the kitchen just to wash one vegetable; everything has been designed so that actions and movements are as fluid as if you had infinite space. The layout of these new kitchens. designed around large work surfaces, lets you feel free, to create without

restriction. The "Roma" kitchen sprayer, by Stella, with its impeccable design, initiates perfection of movement. Washing becomes a real pleasure, since precision and ease of action is facilitated. The new materials add to the natural elements for more solidity and functionality. The stratified work surface by Polrey, solid and attractive, comes in a spirit of earth and stone combined, bringing the kitchen this touch of natural, which makes you want to find the textures and flavours of vegetables picked fresh from the garden.

© COURTESY CARPENTERS WORKSHOP GALLERY / PLEYEL

The "La" came out of the meeting, initiated by Pierre Yovanovitch, between the designer Maarten Baas represented by Carpenters Workshop Gallery and Pleyel. It gave birth to a magical instrument, the "Smoke Pleyel." This unique grand piano, transformed into a work of art by the artist is placed in the center of a staging combining classic elegance with contemporary creation. It embodies Pierre Yovanovitch's desire to do away with space-time through a rigourous, sensual esthetic that asserts itself like a universal music. "Although the piano is transformed, it is still an instrument you can play. Through this piece, my work was aimed at bringnig together visual arts and music," explains Maarten Baas. With this project, the artist is paying homage to Chopin's piano, a mythic Pleyel piano, by adding to it hi definition of beauty made up of imperfections. The piano was burned with a blowtorch and covered with black epoxy, like the iconic pieces in the "Smoke " collection. Treated with the same burning technique, the piano stool was upholstered in a woven pattern conceived by Pierre Yovanovitch and made using the Aubusson weaving technique by the Robert Four Gallery. Contrary to appearances, the harmonic and acoustic structure of the instrument was preserved from carbonisation, which allows this piece, a veritable functional, vibrant, and attractive sculpture, to keep its fourth dimension: the timbre and colourful sound of a Pleyel. The "Smoke Pleyel " will be played by a pianist, who will give this king of instruments its meaning, throughout the show.

Š COURTESY CARPENTERS WORKSHOP GALLERY

Originally from Southern California, stylist Rick Owens inserts a demanding, remarkable esthetic into fashion. His original vision plays with materials. He has lived and worked in Paris for the past nine years, but it is in the United States that he developed the dark, minimal style he disseminates in his creations. A film buff, he is fascinated with Hollywood films from the 1930s in particular, for the projected black and white image, whose contrasts and values are both sensual and tragic. Like those cinematographic masterpieces, he tends to reconcile darkness and light in his expression.

Les Cosmogonies, designed by Victoria Magniant and Antoine Pradels are modular lighting structures. Inspired by the simplicity of traditional Japanese architecture, they are made of polygonal modules in wood covered in paper. The modules – held in place with magnets in their framework – can be assembled freely to build illuminated structures. You can assemble them by varying the shapes and colours to make hanging lamps, partitions, or wall lights. Their covering comes in a wide range of Japanese papers — watermarked, translucid, or opaque, whose polychromatic sides create luminous multiple resonances, rythms, and formal harmonies. Les Cosmogonies are presences – modular, minimalist, and poetic structures. Each variation is a unique work, a new way to recompose space in an informal, fluid manner.

1978

By Eglantine Bremond

Stars, humour and freedom, the eve of the 80’s A break from the serious, the style of the 80s made its astounding entry in our interiors because, if you'll recall 1978, was the year that "Les Bronzés" (French Fried Vacation), "La Cage aux Folles" and "Grease" came out in theaters, the New Wave hit the music scene, with the releases of the first albums by the Police, the Cure, and Joy Division, and the year of dance, and partying: "Stayin’Alive" and "Night Fever" by the Bee Gees shared the airwaves with dance funk by Kool and the Gang. A look back at this flagship year, in which the "counter-design" of Studio Alchimia and "High Tech" advocated diversion, the essence of humour. The cult of the star After years of democratising interior decoration, started in reaction to the elitism of the art deco movement, the collective moved into the background, shelved by the cult of the exclusive. Rare, costly materials return to the world of decoration. Limited editions were all the rage. The extraordinary is sought after, admired. Stars, and artistic creation as a whole, returned to center stage. The 80s casually thumbed their nose at modernisation and mass production. People venerated, adored, became fetishistic; nothing was lukewarm at the start of a new sociocultural era.

MCOMMEMAISON INTERACTIVE - No. 12

Studio Alchimia: a fervor for creative casualness The creations of Studio Alchimia, a collective of Italian designers founded in 1976, were discovered by the general public in 1978, particularly throuh the famous Proust armchair, by Alessandro Mendini. Designers like Alessandro Mendini, Ettore Sottsass, Michele De Lucchi, and Andrea Branzi, breaking with modernism, exhibited unique pieces, in this experimental design gallery founded by architect Alessandro Guerriero. The artists proclaimed a return of innovation, free from any industrial pressure.


78 Studio Alchimia brought about a veritable break in the era of design, diverting its codes and values through free, humouristic creations. A decoration star: the Proust armchair by Alessandro Mendini In 1978, Alessandro Mendini came up with an overrefined armchair with humour and spirit. He imagined an armchair made of wood and hand-painted fabric, that Proust could have used, colourful and generous. The fabric was designed in conjunction with Francesco Binfaré for Cassina, following an exploration of the places where Proust lived. It was an inspiration for the divisionist painting of Paul Signac, which leaves the viewer's eye free to associate the strokes of colour, arranged in a loose conglomeration, as they wish. Dozens of versions of this armchair, in varying patterns and materials, were sold as unique pieces by Studio Alchimia.

High Tech anti-design

In 1978, following on the Georges Pompidou centre, Richard Rogers conceived the Lloyd’s Building, designed by Renzo Piano. Borrowing materials from the industrial era, in unusual creations, where the cables and pipes become creative elements, the Lloyd’s Building is unique in that it "shows off its guts." What should be inside is outside. Richard Rogers shattered the exclusively functional value of stairwells, elevators, electrical conduits and water lines, which become valued elements of the décor. High Tech asserted itself, demonstrating that the functional can be preserved, all while valuing the creation and work on the artistic form. Associated with derision, futility, and nonintellectual values such as celebration, parties, the creative movement of the 80s was poorly received, and minimised in the following decades. Initiated by a constructive criticism because derived from mass production, this movement was the fruit of a thought that has no rival in the ideals of today. In 2013, the codes are inverted; think less, laugh more, and dance more are the foundations of a valued art of living much less futile than it appears. This is perhaps one of the reasons why the famous contemporary designers are including the emblematic fluorescent colours in design…

Modern and comfortable, this extralarge dressing room with its ultratrendy facades, with its tall, sliding doors, is organized around central hangers mounted on wall consoles. On both sides, the light and dark decorations respond to one another, becoming a decorative element in their own right.

Content and form… Contemporary interiors favor openness, synonymous with space and light. The suite, which in one space dedicated to well-being, combines bedroom, dressing room, and bathroom, illustrates this current home trend, and manufacturers are multiplying the solutions for fitting out these private spaces, regardless of their size. For very large rooms that are often difficult to fit out, a vast dressing area can serve as a separation between the sleeping area and bathroom, like a transition airlock. Very clever, like below, the headboard/partition contains a bookcase, and shelves. On both sides of the headboard,

two sliding doors give access to the dressing room, and when they are closed the doors conceal the storage elements. This type of configuration lets the occupants move around with total privacy, but without crowding, that's real luxury. As for materials, melamine offers a finish that reproduces the graining of wood for a natural look with plenty of character. The new super flat lacquers, combined with wood décors, create soft, bright atmospheres. Favored in stylish, designer interiors, varnished glass bends to all your colour desires, for custom decoration that is full of radiance.

Here's a good idea: in a large space dedicated to parents, the dressing room with a sliding door can transform into a partition. It delimits and separates the sleeping area from the bathroom in this suite. With an ingenious mobile-door system integrated in the closet, the passage between the bedroom and bathroom is concealed.

Transparency is a quality‌ Harmony and sophistication for these partition doors that slide naturally in the world of the bedroom and elegantly demarcate the storage space. Equipped with dark-tinted laminated glass, they let in light while maintaining privacy inside the dressing room. Here the dressing room itself, with its silvery mirrors mounted on the shelves and drawer faces, its sliding sections, dedicated to elegance, is a luxurious, sophisticated cocoon.

The last word… Imposing a high idea of comfort, this design, with its generous dimensions is an illustration of the art of storage. A vast space punctuated by compartments, columns, clothes rails, alter-

nating open and closed elements, sublimated by "trendy" materials, but especially an ingenious design, for a perfect organisation. The result of a discussion on modernity and the esthetic codes of contemporary interior design, this year's collections propose new lines of partitions and doors dedicated to interiors smitten with openness and space, particularly with this model from Quadro. Compartments made to order down to the milimeter in depth, width, and height, LED or halogen lighting, sliding drawers, vertical partitions...constraints are done away with, in order to adapt to every need, for a super stylish effect.

Visit the site: www.quadro.fr

Focus on storage components… Never before have dressing rooms been so sophisticated. Shelves for shoes, sliding sections, storage compartments, corner closets, holders for trousers, wardrobe lifts, baskets and tidies, retractable mirrors...for more functionality and comfort. Every manufacturer's selection guide offers lots of useful, concrete advice for success in each step of design and installation, to structure and optimise space, rationalise storage and do away with badly laid-out volumes. Each detail is considered, down to the millimeter. MCOMMEMAISON INTERACTIVE - No. 12

Steam room OR sauna? Steam rooms feature a bath of steam at around 50°C saturated with 100% humidity. Recommended after a muscle activity, it

soothes aches and ligament pains. Steam also helps to decongest bronchial tubes and brings a deep relaxation. Saunas, also known as "Finnish saunas" because of their origin, feature hot dry air in a wooden booth. The temperature can vary from 80 to 100ºC. The heat promotes the elimination of toxins purged through sweat, all while bringing intense relaxation. The model opposite is a panoramic version with a view to the outside.

Focus on the shower… In the spa world, hydrotherapy is finding an important means of expression through professional therapy showers, also known as sensation showers. During their application, you can use temperature contrasts (cold water/hot water) or pressure contrasts and combine the use of essential oils, or mineral compounds, and even chromotherapy. Ideal for stimulating circulation, balancing, and detoxing the body. The sensory stimulation caused, in addition to physical effects, also has psychological effects, thus bringing a pleasant state of mental and bodily relaxation. MCOMMEMAISON INTERACTIVE - No. 12

Beauty and goodness for our interior... For technophiles, it is essential to have the latest technologies in fashion when it comes to audiovisual equipment, but as a general rule, we take into account technical considerations and the design of the device, whether it is a flat screen TV, a home theatre system, or a stereo. More and more manufacturers today emphasize design. Choosing the material used to prouduce the equipment is one of the first concerns of manufacturers. The combination of materials helps sublimate each model.

Brushed aluminium for a very striking grey look, chromed metal or textured polycarbonate are some of the most sought-after materials. In the philosophy of the manufacturers, audiovisual equipment must be a part of the interior decoration. Televisions are becoming more sophisticated in order to become veritable artworks hanging on the wall, while the audio system is now part of the furniture. Now, we choose our audiovisual equipment like we choose our living or dining rooms.

More than just simple light sources, lamps have become veritable decorative objects over time. Design and creativity are now the watchwords. And there is something for every style. Industrial, minimalist, contemporary, traditional... designers try to out do each other to make lamps real works of art in any room.

How do you choose a lamp? A lamp doesn't just improve the look of a room. Beyond its visual aspect, it must also serve a functional role. For example, it is hard to work in a poorlylit office, which is why a desklamp is useful. If you use this type of lamp occasionally, a designer lamp would be a good bet. On the other hand, for an everyday desk lamp, you have to consider its performance.

The illuminated area depends on the height of the lamp and the bulb. The higher the lamp, the broader its lighting area. In economic and environmental terms, the LED bulb is still a very good choice. Otherwise, for better lighting, the halogen bulb offers very good results. And for the lamp to integrate well into the room's dĂŠcor, it is better to choose a lamp style that fits in with the living room, desk, bedroom, etc.

in hand‌ Whether it's chandeliers, ceiling lights, wall lamps, or table lamps, these models make a room's decoration all on their own. In that search for perfection and design, the choice of innovative, sophisticated materials is a permanent quest. In the end, the blending of materials gives elegance to the whole room.

When materials set the trend… In addition to design, all the charm of a lamp resides in the choice of materials. For a traditional-style room, especially the living room, noble materials like iron and glass remain sound values. And all styles are permitted, from romantic to baroque, considering iron is easily manipulated. A wrought iron lamp is not only a guarantee of sophistication, but it also provides sweetness and poetry to the décor through its curves.

The contrast with glass, another malleable material, is simply striking. Wall lamps offer a veritable blend of genres. Modern materials, like stainless steel or aluminium are combined with fabric for the shade. The advantage of fabrics is the ability to choose a solid or print for a personalized design.

A bit of sweetness and poetry‌ Thanks to the ingenious, creative touch of designers, lamps have become the stars of interior design. As important as the couch is to the living room or the bed to the bedroom, they draw attention and surprise with their unusual forms. The trend is toward poetry in shapes, and lightness in materials. Such as the result of a manual work as in school or a DIY workshop, paper lamps and floor lamps easily find a place in a

corner of the living room. With paper, there are no limits to the imagination. The result is a lamp that gives off filtered light and a muffled atmosphere. A star of fashion and decoration in recent years, lace is also inspiring designers. Among the models that don't go unnoticed, the plexiglas chandelier evokes the patterns of lace. In its centre, a vertical fluorescent bulb gives off a soft light.

Spots: design and discreet‌ Spots provide the discretion you're looking for when you want to draw attention to other components of the room. This type

of lamp attaches to the ceiling and is increasingly widespread. Spots, in fact, have many advantages. In addition to being effective in optimally lighting any room, they have an understated style thanks to their minimalist design. Additionally, they offer a certain discretion. At the entrance, in the dining room, kitchen, or living roo, the atmosphere will depend on the lighting power and the number of spots mounted on the ceiling. Some lamps are also adapted to the bathroom, because they resist humidity. For secondary lighting, it is preferable to choose spots equipped with LEDs.

Visit the site: www.verbatim.fr

Track light or recessed? Many parameters should be considered before buying spot lights for the ceiling. A recessed spot can not really be used unless the room has a false ceiling. For secondary lighting, a spot equipped with LEDs is the best solution. Otherwise, you can chose a compact fluorescent spot. Another advantage, it comes in different shapes (round, square, rectangular, flat, etc.) and offers many options: fixed, telescoping, directional, etc. As for spots on tracks or cables, they can be used on practically any type of ceiling, including hard ceilings.

96 Artist Portraits…

MCOMMEMAISON INTERACTIVE - No. 12


Part of the family of 1st-generation conceptual artists, Hamish Fulton, who was born in England in 1946, has been travelling the world on foot since the 70s, immersing himself in the 'artistic walks' that for him represent solo performances. Educated at London's famous Saint Martin’s School, the artist realised very early on that art could not be confined to a workshop. As a result, and together with his friend Richard Long, he decided, at the beginning of this period, to seek the material he needed to create a work from the long walks he would take. For him, "walking transforms". The intimate experiences of these hundreds of walks and the thousands of kilometres travelled are recreated in the exhibition through a series of photographs, wall paintings and sculptures. Indeed, it is on this transition from the private sphere to the public sphere that his approach is based. The CRAC Languedoc-Roussillon will be presenting a one-off exhibition from 30 October 2013 until 2 February 2014 marking the return to France of British artist Hamish Fulton. The monographic exhibition, entitled En marchant ('Walking'), comprises new works!: including photographs and wall paintings. It puts a new perspective on the work of this well-established "walking artist" showcased in a number of institutional and private collections both in France and abroad and enjoyed on the international stage for over forty years.

Each angle of a Wendell Castle piece provides us with new information. From far away, these hybrid forms seem to defy categorisation. The curves, organic and voluminous, which seem to grow up out of the ground, are both welcoming and intriguing – what connection do we maintain with the piece? In his latest series, Leap of Faith, Wendell Castle revisits the paradoxical relationship between formal innovation and function, continuing his exploration into lamination, a technique that at once acknowledges the inherent characteristics of materials, while enabling them to be worked infinitely, creating surprising sculptural pieces, devoid of any pre-established formal notion.

ma cocotte: A warm and improbable spontaneity

MCOMMEMAISON INTERACTIVE - No. 12


© Thomas Bilanges

"ma cocotte cannot be described, ma cocotte is experienced. Not much theory, no style, no fashion. Just a crystal-clear desire." The desire for a place warmed by its fireplaces and its kitchen, made alive by its friends and its cooks, free like a space where anything can happen, made fertile by its surprises hidden or displayed on or in the walls. Is it a bistro in Paris? Is it a canteen somewhere else? Was the Brick there already? Were the floor tiles really laid by a naive lunatic? The bronzes cast in concrete, were they deliberate, or was it a mistake? Are there more hidden things here? Would the Droog restroom be better in a free clinic? Did they forget to paint the chairs? Didn't they have enough money to match the lamps and place settings? Who took this incredible collection of surrealist photos? Why are the fireplaces there and yet not there? At ma cocotte, everything is a question without an answer. The only things that count are what are you eating and who are you eating it with." — Philippe Starck —

102 Starck made …

Beyond the limits of creativity… While it is impossible to think out spontaneity, it very much appears that Philippe Starck has succeeded in staging it, in this restaurant where, he says, "questions have no answers." Always spiritual, Starck surpasses, from creation to creation, his own limits; he always fills us with wonder, again and again. With ma cocotte, he creates the unexpected, the unthinkable. And yet, you cannot imagine that these objects were gleaned in chaos and total disorder, so much a spirit permeates these spaces, that of Starck

loving Saint Ouen. Ma cocotte, has the atomosphere of a Warm Paris, Starck's joyous fantasy and, in fact, a command to stop asking yourself questions… The counter, in stainless steel, the white of the walls highlights the colour, the amusing, colourful creations recall Starck's imagination. And, the eye is drawn to a crazy creation of frames, empty, full, unaligned, un perfect harmony, that only a certain spontaneity can have staged.

If Starck invites us to live without thinking, it is possible that he created this place while respecting this motto. A master stroke, blending the art of decoration and spirituality, done with style. Starck proves that creation exists when we exceed the limits of reason. The dining room, mixing genres and eras, has style.

106 Starck made ‌

Where we discover that errors of taste And this is almost surprising about it... how the caramel coloured leatherette of working-class bistros, supposed to clash with the contemporary designer lamp, finds its place. Oh, what a place! Ma cocotte is one of those places where you want to be, where everything is beautiful in the end, but it is that beauty you only perceive with the heart, the beauty that remains. The "error of taste" no longer exists, Stark destroys it, for good. Make way for real creation. Starck created this place by drawing inspiration from a Sunday morming, and a bowl of hot soup eaten at his grandmother's house.

MCOMMEMAISON INTERACTIVE - No. 12

Here we find, like a Sunday at grandma's house, the old fashioned effect of mismatched furniture, simultaneously with time and the chance of life's moments. But added to it is Starck's loving eye, an eye that doesn't judge, thus revealing beauty and those moments of tenderness. The large table, where diners sit facing the kitchen, appears straight out of the imagination, where we dream of long, laughter-filled discussions. The rustic wood wonderfly contrasted by the stainless steel of the kitchen, the temple of excellence in the service of well-being.

And, in the middle of this abundance of life, blending conviviality, the delights of the luxury hotel, human gettogethers and laughter, the unexpected continues its reign. The restroom, white and immaculate, is a surprise, like a void in the middle of abundance. The essential thing, objects serving people, high quality plumbing, remains. But the void shouts out, calls, like an invitation to contemplation, to live fully in this space we find ourselves in, alone. Obviously, ma cocotte wins its gamble, an invitation to live each moment, without thinking.

The skill of Porcelaines Raynaud combined with the photographer's talent has given rise to a series of plates printed in numbered, limited editions, and available in 300 sets of dinner plates and 300 sets of dessert plates. Thierry Marx: "Mathilde de l’Ecotais sees, with her lens and especially with her mind, through to the depth of the material in order to extract its subtle, voluptuous poetry. Her photos invite the viewer on an endless journey, without limits, between structure and destructure. Subdued by her eye, the most everyday of vegetables becomes an abstract artwork." www.raynaud.fr
