Lustre [Thoumieux]

“This is the Chandelier that we designed for the Hotel Thoumieux. Its owners, the entrepreneur Thierry Costes and Michelin-starred chef Jean-François Piège initially commissioned us to do a classic graphic identity. We designed a logotype for his newly renovated gastronomic hotel in Paris. Our design was a graphical frieze writing the name Thoumieux that could govern the whole space, from its walls to its business cards. We had the frieze engraved in gold and silver on the mirrors and in the carpets. We then had the same frieze grow into the third dimension to form the shape of a chair, of lamps and of this chandelier.”
