Painter, sculptor, designer, craftsman, and engraver of art books, Piero Fornasetti was a visionary. In his lifetime, the Milanese artist created more than 11,000 items, considered among the largest output of art objects and furniture in the 20th century. His son Barnaba continues that workshop tradition today, reviving his father's most popular pieces and creating new ones. In this illustrated memoire devoted to Piero Fornasetti's work, Philippe Starck and Barnaba Fornasetti discuss his contribution to 20th century art and design.
Since the earliest times, cacao - chocolate - has been highly valued and served as food for the kings and gods. For Parisians, the word "chocolate" often follows the name Jean-Paul Hevin. His creations in sugar and cream broke with convention, raising the expectations of a generation and defining what fine chocolate means today. His storied ascension from boyhood in rural France led him through the kitchens of culinary masters and finally to Japan, a land that was open to excellence, humble in learning, and especially respectful of skilfully crafted work. It was here that Hevin formed a philosophy of chocolate built on an addiction of the senses. Today, chocolates that bear Jean-Paul Hevin's name are among the most coveted in the world. Jean-Paul Hevin delves deep into the heart of chocolate through illustrations, recipes, and stories, evoking the rich aroma of Hevin's premier chocolateries, the mystery of his passion, and the desire for one small bite of perfection.
Veuve Clicquot Yellow:
The yellow labels of the House Veuve Clicquot Ponsardin have become global icons, evoking excellence in champagne. By coincidence, Madame Clicquot named her daughter Clementine, never suspecting that the labels of her champagne would one day be defined by that shining optimistic hue. The Veuve Clicquot Yellow is a subtle mix of golden yellow and orange. Its exceptional pigments give it unequalled charm and elegance. A symbol of wisdom and eternity, recalling the vivid brushstrokes of Gauguin and Rothko, the Veuve Clicquot Yellow is the supreme luxury, ushering in a breath of life, and a taste of metamorphosis.
