“Meeting” is: The meeting between 2 Nantes craftsmen’s workshops. The meeting between 3 materials: wood, ceramics and metal
A work of thoughtful association so that the materials communicate with each other, respond to each other and create a graphic continuity.

Given the pressing environmental issues facing society, it’s time for designers to come up with sustainable solutions aimed at a circular economy. Wouldn’t it be ideal if we could contribute to a closed-loop business model, where we can breathe new life into products and materials, especially those that are typically not recyclable?

Converted since September 2020 to the profession of ceramist Léa Baldassari likes to make everyday objects by hand.
Driven by craftsmanship, raw, natural, mineral materials, her atypical journey has led her to create with her hands through her experiences.
Herapproach to matter is instinctive, the textures are raw, organic.
In a slow and respectful design process, the intrinsic qualities of the natural earth.

Gueules de bois are second-hand wooden objects, chosen and collected because they have “mouths”: shapes, typical materials, sometimes incongruous, surprising or obvious. Each is carefully cleaned, sanded and then painted by hand. Their decorations, always renewed, adapt to the shape of the room, to their traces of use, to their scars. The choice of paint textures, the creation of color ranges, the presence of the expressive and dynamic gesture, confront them. They reveal them in a new light, play with their primary identity, exaggerate their features, refine or sublimate them.

LaLaLa Signature is a sustainable and responsible furniture brand. We revisit the basics, the essentials of furniture, and all that without superfluity.

Textile design and everyday objects combining industrial and artisanal creation, we are inspired by travel and the cultures crossed on our way to design objects like no other.

I manifest my desire for excitement – to go beyond the usual and express myself without any restrictions that have accompanied me since childhood – through my creations. From an early age, I was looking for new ways to see things. I embrace nature as it is, I make no effort to change it or demonstrate it without any imperfections or flaws, I just mix it with my own thoughts. I hit rocks, break them and allow them to show themselves with all their faults and flaws. Flaws are beautiful and to accept them is to accept what is true.
