A porcelaine Christmas tree from Limoges at the Royal Monceau-Raffles Paris.
The palace of Avenue Hoche asked French artist Sylvie Maréchal to create a light sculpture. Entirely handcrafted and requiring more than six months of work, this “haute couture” piece is the result of both contemporary design and traditional craftsmanship skills coming together. Suspended from the ceiling by 221 wires, this Christmas tree is made up of more than 600 pieces including 420 in the form of birds and stars, handmade in the porcelain workshop of Pierre Arquié in Limoges. Thanks to the biscuit, this matte white porcelain is reminiscent of snow, the LED’s inside each piece lend a soft and warm light to the hotel’s lobby.
