Collaboration with Petit h

Collaboration with Petit h

The students of the ECAL / Ecole cantonale d'art de Lausanne's Master of Advanced Studies in Design for Luxury & Craftsmanship were invited to revive the "sleepy" materials and objects that make up the impressive collection of petit h. Based on previous experiences with Hermès and petit h, the project began with a meeting with artisans in the workshops in Pantin, near Paris. Guided by the London designer Bethan Laura Wood, who perfectly succeeded in inspiring his energy and colorful world, the students designed fun and surprising objects.

Among all the proposals presented, two series of containers were particularly attractive. For the first, inspired by the exquisite corpse, the lids of the different boxes turn, thus mixing the heads and bodies of the animal shapes cut out of the silk. The second refers to a vegetable garden: the pompon or the leaf, which emerge from the lid, recall the vines of plants growing underground. By pulling on this projection, the user discovers a vegetable hidden in the box.
