" I grew up in an artist's studio. I walked along frames and hopped between pigment jars. I imagined that I would decorate plates or umbrellas with these patterns...
This experience instigated my desire to create a label to transpose art pieces onto objects, that would be both useful and inspiring."
The objects created by Bureau des Objets Émotifs are mostly made in France, by manufactures still located in their historical regions with a strong traditional know-how.
QUALITY AND FINISHINGS
An anthracite metallic signature is hand sewn on each textile object (scarves and umbrellas in the first collection).
The objects are manufactured in limited quantities. They are named after the original artwork. Each object is individually controlled before being packed.
Silk scarves are made in Lyon, France silk manufacturing city since the 16th century. Porcelain plates are from Limoges, the renowned French “white gold” capital since the 18th century. Umbrellas are manufactured by one of the last remaining French factory…
On a selected case-by-case basis, some objects may be produced in other countries according to specificities (such as the watches’ movement from Japan).
The objects are designed in Paris by Raphaëlle Raymond, who founded the company end of 2011. She previously worked during 15 years in the luxury sector, in particular for Kenzo and Jean Paul Gaultier. She has two passions. One goes to contemporary art, having fed her appetite for creation in her artistic family background. Another is directed at style-defining items - accessories which sign a personality, and make everyday life more beautiful.
