Par Excellence at Revelations Art Fair June 9>12

As part of the Révélations Art Fair, the artisans of the Par Excellence collective are revealing a new scenography highlighting the know-how of Ateliers Lison de Caunes, Atelier de Ricou, Ateliers Jouffre, Ateliers Saint-Jacques, Manufacture de Tapis de Bourgogne, et Maison Meljac.

This exhibition space was imagined by the designer Constant Clesse, who also participated in the conception of certain pieces.

Housed in the heart of the Grand Palais Éphémère, energized by the effervescence of more than 400 exhibitors, this scenography was conceived as a call to travel around a unifying theme that celebrates materials from around the world. The totem covered in straw marquetry by Ateliers Lison de Caunes, revealing on its 4 sides a prism of colors with natural straw in its center, stands out as a centerpiece around which are articulated the original works of our artisans, symbolizing the extent of their exceptional know-how.

The flamboyant rug “Caldeira”, designed by Elsa Barbillon and crafted by Manufacture de Tapis de Bourgogne in wool and silk, adorns the wall with its blue and ochre tones like a painting that invites one to contemplate the diversity of techniques used in its creation.

On the floor, the rug designed by Thomas Pheasant, and hand tufted in the workshops of Manufacture de Tapis de Bourgogne, softens the scene in shades of grey enhanced by flashes of light coming from the bronze fragments made by Ateliers Saint-Jacques and embedded in the rug.

In the center of this same rug is a coffee table in solid green marble from the Alps hand manufactured by Ateliers Saint-Jacques and designed by Constant Clesse. A pyramid in brass created by Maison Meljac sits on top of the table. Elegant and functional, this piece imagined by our expert craftsman in high-end electrical equipment is a multimedia hub, whose finishes and engravings are entirely customizable.

The sofa and armchair in velvet fabric from Métaphores, both key pieces in the “Panthère” collection imagined by Studio Parisien in collaboration with Ateliers Jouffre, bring softness through their curves. Atelier de Ricou exhibits on the wall a creation revealing their mastered technique of eglomised glass, here used as a mirror effect whose frame is made of several samples of their art materials.

A true contemporary work of art designed and produced by Lison de Caunes Creation, the Louxor chest of drawers, covered with its ebony straw marquetry with graphic patterns in relief, stands proudly alongside the lounge area on the adjacent wall.

Ateliers Saint-Jacques and Constant Clesse also designed a bench in walnut and patinated bronze, characterized by sliding doors in brass and wood marquetry, whose pierced effects form a trellis “Musharabieh” style. The cushion of the bench is covered with a taupe silk “Tout Doux” velvet decorated with custom-made bouffettes and a braid from the Tsarina collection by Declercq Passementiers.

On the walls, the sample panels showcasing our artisans know how echo their exhibited creations and give an additional idea of the range of possible finishes.
