Artist : Atelier Passage Secret
Yaël Malignac is a graduate of Ecole Boulle who has worked in the luxury industry for 11 years, for Lalique Cristalleries and JL Coquet porcelains. Guillaume Descoings is a modeler and ceramic technician who worked as a trainer, technician and developer for interior architecture projects. It is around porcelain that they met, and it was in this material that they wished to work together.
“It’s a strong emulation between our creative and technical skills that made us want to form this duo. We like the unusual, the unexpected, the poetry and the beautiful. We want to create contrast to highlight porcelain, its whiteness, its fragility, its translucency. We take the time to invent, design and create each unique piece…”
