Ymer&Malta Director Valérie Maltaverne presents on the philosophy and process of her company, and discusses three exceptional works from the studio’s marquetry collection designed by Benjamin Graindorge, Sylvain Rieu-Piquet, and Sebastian Bergne. About Ymer&Malta: Revisiting the French traditions of “savoir-faire” marquetry, inlaying, and carving, French design studio Ymer&Malta creates limited edition contemporary furniture and design objects. Produced using timeless materials–marble, leather, glass, and wood–Ymer&Malta pieces are precious objects that are built to last and remain relevant far into the future. This talk is organized in collaboration with Oui Design, an initiative of the Cultural Services of the French Embassy in the United States. It is supported by Institut français-Paris, the French Ministry of Culture and Communication, FACE Foundation, and the Florence Gould Foundation.
