The Take Away box of Team France Bocuse d'Or was born after 6 months of research, studies and experiments around the best materials and perfect design. 100% made of plant-based materials, this box was imagined and designed by Paelis to be functional, reusable while remaining unique. It is a real luxury case, produced in 15 copies, which has highlighted the dishes of the French team led by Davy Tissot, winner of the Bocuse d'Or final.

This creation was inspired by discussions with friends and families, designed thanks to the work of different trades and in close collaboration with the gastronomic expertise of Davy Tissot and his team. It uses different savoir-faire for which innovation is absolutely essential: 3D printing based on starch filaments, a vegetable varnish produced by the Vercadi workshop as well as the straw marquetry created in our workshop in Lyon.

The exterior is clad in charcoal-tinted black straw in a random herringbone pattern imagined by Paelis while the lid, bottom and inner platters are covered in golden straws applied in threads.

By wishing to combine craftsmanship with culinary art, Paelis is proud to have accompanied the French team towards the consecration and victory of the Bocuse d'Or 2021.

Louis Vuitton is publishing in 2021 an office secretary inspired by the famous Secretary Stokowski.

Created in 1929 by Georges Vuitton for Leopold Stokowski, this trunk was designed to meet all the needs of a nomad worker: many drawers, storage spaces for books and papers, a safe at the time intended to put down a typewriter and everything needed to work during a trip.

The workshop took care of lining the interior of the secretary in straw marquetry, according to a pattern using the Maison's LV initials.

It was love at first sight for their respective skills that led Thierry Martenon and Manon Bouvier to work together. As soon as they met, they felt the need to create for each other.

This sculpture is the first of a long collaboration. It unites the hands, materials, tools and gestures of its two creators.

The wood magnifies the straw and the straw magnifies the wood. The skills complement each other and come together to create a unique, complex and fascinating piece.

We worked in close collaboration with the Team France Bocuse d'Or to design a tray in accordance with the dishes presented during the European final. The workshop carried out precise and delicate work on the straw marquetry but also on other customer requests, in particular the production of eggs in plaster and real shells.

The tray was designed by Xavier Salerio (Designer-architect), Bernard Frizza, bronze artist (MOF), Maxime Lacroix, cabinetmaker, and Marion Chatel-Chaix, culinary designer. It won the Best Tray Award in the final round of the Europe competition.

This screen was designed according to the drawings of designer and interior architect Charlotte Biltgen. She is at the start of many projects known for their originality and creativity. Among them, the Clay, the intimate restaurant of Élodie and Jean-François Piège.

For this original screen, Manon Bouvier interpreted Charlotte Biltgen's design using straw marquetry techniques and, therefore, incorporating an additional movement in the undulation of the waves. The gradient, from light gray to black, associated with reflections of straw and those of brass from Atelier Yzse make this creation particularly luminous.

The creative duo composed of Flavia de Laubadère and Manon Bouvier highlights black straw and bamboo leaf.

This screen reveals all the beauty of a savoir-faire and incorporates a new material, which both highlights and breaks with the tradition of straw marquetry.

The screen was imagined and designed by Flavia de Laubadère. The pattern, created with Manon Bouvier, is inspired by the reflections of light on white bamboo leaves, in the chiaroscuro of a full moon night.
