ECAL x MAUVIEL 1830 Creativity knows no boundaries and certainly not those of kitchens! The collaboration with Mauviel represents for ECAL and students of the Master in Advanced Studies in Design for Luxury & Craftsmanship an incredible opportunity to delve into the world of gastronomy. Through a project that began with a tour of the whole class at the factory in Normandy, which was followed by a meeting with the stared chef Yannick Alléno in Paris, students were able to discover a world where knowledge is synonymous with Excellency.

Facilitate the work of chef, sublimate the tastes and products but also present the dishes straight from the fire were points that were ringside in the specifications. Mauviel’s expertise in terms of transformation of material through specific techniques, but also knowledge of the specific needs of the chefs were also extremely useful elements to start this ambitious project.
Accompanied by the designer Tomas Kral, students from around the world were able to explore many ways. A selection made under the expert eye of Mauviel then gave birth to a series of prototypes that are waiting to be tested.
For the ECAL, this collaboration is again a discovery, a valuable exchange and for sure a wonderful tasting experience!
