5 designer publishing houses to discover

Promoting art and creation, discovering new talents, highlighting technical innovation are among the main concerns of design publishing houses. In terms of decoration - and not only - we have to admit that design is booming. At the same time, the number of publishers continues to grow in France. Maisonnée, Marcel By, Polit, La Chance and ÉSÉ are five design publishing houses to discover without further delay.

Household

Maisonnée is an interior object publishing house founded in Paris in 2012 by Audrey Belin. Independent, she wanted to create her publishing house in her image and entrust the manufacture of her objects to exclusively French craftsmen in a concern, she said, of "industrial citizenship". This passionate and curious young designer likes to stage mischievous objects that are not devoid of poetry, and let herself be carried away by the story they tell us.

Marcel By

It was with the aim of uniting the work of creators with that of craftsmen that Stephan Lanez and Jean-Jacques Lejal decided, in 2011, to found the publishing house Marcel By which was created a year later. Innovation, fantasy and marriage of materials are at the heart of the collections presented by the publishing house. Marcel By works with many craftsmen located in France as well as in Spain, Italy or even in Romania, and specialized in painting, glassware, marble, carpentry and boilermaking. Among the designers associated with the Marcel By contemporary furniture and objects publishing house, we find, for example, Jun Yasumoto, Samuel Accocebery, Stephen Lanez and Noé Duchaufour-Lawrence. Craftsmen and designers are selected by Marcel By for their qualities, their know-how and their creativity.

Polit

Discovered at the Maison & Objet fair in September 2013, Polit is a very young publishing house that we owe to Geoffroy Berthet, a Nîmes who embodies the French spirit. Barely over 30 years old, this young design enthusiast is also an esthete: he likes the purity of the lines, the comfort, what could be more normal than to baptize his publishing house Polit, which - in the south of France - means beautiful. Geoffroy makes it a point of honor to combine aesthetics with functionality, and wishes to promote objects made in France with the greatest respect for the environment. Like Club Sandwich, a creation by Cyril de Moulins and published by Polit, this new design publishing house loves the story told by furniture evoking the 1950s and adapted to today's needs.

Luck

La Chance, a French publishing house, was born from the passion of Louise Breguet and Jean-Baptiste Souletie for design. They wanted to highlight the talent of thousands of artists. The objects published by La Chance are handmade, by artisans from France of course, and from other European countries. Each object magnifies glass, metal, wood or marble and interprets French design. The successive collections, always sophisticated, allow La Chance to impose its identity. The Bolt stool by Note Design Studio, the atypical Tip Top lamp by Jonah Takagi or the Borghese chaise longue by Noé Duchaufour-Lawrence are among the many creations of innovative designers.

ÉSÉ

It was in Saint-Etienne that Edition Sous Etiquette was born in April 2010. It is the result of the association of three art enthusiasts: Valérie Gonot, François Mangeol and Vincent Lemarchands. Their goal is to participate in the feasibility of projects of architects, designers or graphic designers handpicked, and part of the editorial line of ESÉ. This very young publishing house of objects distributes original creations, witnesses of the contemporary era. From prototype to distribution, ÉSÉ is fully involved in the production of numbered series which are then placed on the market through museum and gallery boutiques or shops specializing in new trendy furniture. It is up to the authors to create the label, each creation of which will then be accompanied.
