Table objects Le Suquet
All of the objects presented were created as part of the overall design project for Bras Restaurant Le Suquet. The corporeality of the objects is based on the presence of the material and the sobriety of the design. They compose a setting of table that accompanies the meeting between the mineral and the living, the landscape and the kitchen.

Restaurant Bras Le Suquet
The design project of the three-star restaurant Le Suquet of the Bras family in Laguiole involved to design and to redraw several existing buildings. In particular, there were the dining room and all objects linked with these spaces. We imagined about twenty typologies of objects, from exterior signage to table settings. We designed the tableware, the knives, the armchairs, the whole furniture and the uniforms of waiters, among other thing. Our positioning was placed in compliance, continuity and development of what makes the identity of the Bras House. We wanted to extend by objects, furniture and space, the understanding and the sensitivity of the Bras family with the land of Aubrac. So our interventions have been thought as a bridge placed between two leak points. Everything starting from landscape to reach the plate. This approach is made as an image of the culture and people of the lands, and intentions and emotions transmitted by the kitchen of Michel and Sébastien Bras. We wanted to accompany and translate these values by objects marked by simplicity and franchise. Silent sometimes taciturn , but delicate in the implementation of materials, design details and the proposed uses. Spaces and objects that require memory, both simple , sober and comforting.

Global design, restaurant Bras, Laguiole, France
Dishes designed for Bras coffee in the Soulages museum reflects the intentions and values of place and cooking imagined by the Bras family to the city of Rodez.
Very close to the type of brewery, Bras coffee is not a place qualified with strong sensations and innovative experiences but by taste of memory and pleasure of sharing; it is part of the city, the country and its people. Close to what we like to call peasant design, dishes trying to be discreet support this cuisine, a humble and silent presence. It evokes a culture and values, it speaks to our memory as our senses with immediacy and simplicity. We took inspiration in the shape of the caldron jam in copper by drawing a surface that turns and ends with a bead. The round and generous reverse is what constitutes the technical challenge and specificity of the identity of the range.
