Margaux Keller : Vue Mer

«Now 10 years ago that I made the choice of design Proudly claims Margaux Keller. Although the French designer has been practicing for many years, her career has taken a new turn with the launch of her own brand, Margaux Keller Collections. New challenges inaugurated by a first series, Vue Mer. A tribute to the big blue while finesse.

Graduate of ENSAAMA Olivier de Serres and Ecole Boulle, Margaux Keller trained with the greatest, Philippe Starck agency through the Fabrica. In 2012, she moved to Marseille to found her own global design agency which will generate collaborations all more prestigious than the others: Yves Saint Laurent, Dior, Roche Bobois, Made.com etc. Four years later, she takes the head of the artistic direction of the publisher Bibelo, without ceasing its activities. Focusing on everything, passionate and a bit hyperactive, Margaux Keller is today launching a new challenge: to be at the head of her brand, founded alongside Anaïs Fretigny, formerly in charge of jewelry development at Saint Laurent Paris.
A new adventure that begins with a tribute to the Mediterranean coast of his hometown through five achievements.

Guided by the history of the Phocaean city, Margaux Keller imagines Hualos, a contemporary version of ancient vases. Hualos meaning "diaphanous" in Greek, the least we can say is that the container is aptly named. Designed in blue torch-blown borosilicate glass, this piece with a height of 20 centimeters has handles that reinterpret the figure of Vaskania, the Greek lucky eye.
A geographical and historical area that also inspired Margaux Keller to create Belu - blue in Provençal -, a contemporary amphora with a marked geometry conceived according to the same technique of blowing, in a tone similar to the first model evoked.

The mirror Garibabou As for him, the Provençal vocabulary is used, the gârri-babòu being a breeze to dazzle passers-by with a reflective surface. Made up of a vertical silver central mirror with rounded edges, the whole is overhung with two semicircles respectively blue and coral reflecting the colors of the sea throughout the day.
The ocean is also materialized by the mirror Maré consisting of two reflective elements - one silvered, the other blue - with irregular edges, evoking, by the purity of its lines, the horizon between sky and sea.

Finally, the collection ends with a voluptuous curiosity in two stages. The duo Abalone acts like two small shells hung on their rock. The blue one (10,3 centimeters by 9 centimeters) also made in torch-blown borosilicate glass is actually a salt cellar when its neighbor, smaller (6,8 centimeters by 7,5 centimeters), is a textured white porcelain pepper.

Each object is wrapped in a furoshiki "Conceived with love and poetry" by the designer. Appeared in Japan in 710-794 AD, the furoshiki is a fabric used to pack valuable goods that embodies the art of the package, the care given to the container equal to that devoted to the choice of the present.

A sensitive craft collection announcing a brilliant future for Margaux Keller Collections.
