Far beyond its function, every object tells a story as well as it is the beginning of a story with the one who chooses it. Its design and the materials that gave birth to it, the shapes it might call to mind are the many expressions allowing it to exist, to seduce and to last. In the common language, Collection Particulière is a mysterious note appearing below a piece of art.
Because the true heart of Collection Particulière, the reason why it exists is the great love of objects : objects to store, expose, sit or just set up. A collection born with the urge to give back its letters patent to pieces that sometimes became generic or outmoded through the times, such as a fruit bowl, a tidy, a stool, a bench or a candle holder. Daily life objects, but a life where every single piece of furniture and every day object are considered to be a sculpture, a piece with a true statement, sometimes impressive… A piece that does not immediately show its true nature.
Most of the pieces composing Collection Particulière meant many technical challenges : manufacturing process, shaping or assembling.
