Atlas·t éditions is a new venture, founded by Sarah Rousselle, dedicated to celebrating artisans and family businesses. With a strong commitment to sourcing the highest quality materials and employing cutting-edge manufacturing techniques, Atlas·t produces pieces that embody a creative spirit and distinct identity.
Immerse yourself in the captivating world of Atlas·t éditions as we proudly present our inaugural masterpieces: the GLORIA vase and FLOAT tray. Crafted from natural materials by Usukiyaki in Japan and Lavagnoli Marmi in Italy, these remarkable pieces pay homage to craftsmanship, representing our unwavering commitment to excellence. The GLORIA vase, made of white matte glazed ceramic by Usukiyaki artisans, stands as a captivating tribute to the morning glory flower, known for its ephemeral beauty that blooms and fades within a single day. Symbolizing longevity through its enduring form, GLORIA is carefully crafted using a press moulding technique. The clay is shaped into the delicate silhouette of the flower, which is then attached to its turned base. GLORIA serves as a contemporary bouquet and a seasonal fruit bowl. As each season unfolds, it transforms into a stunning centrepiece that enhances the beauty of flowers, fruits, vegetables, and nuts. The FLOAT tray, meticulously carved from Sahara noir marble, is a testament to Lavagnoli Marmi's 150 years of expertise in working with natural stones from Italy and abroad. Each individual piece is crafted from stone sourced from mountain quarries, employing CNC equipment for precision shaping, and finished by the skilled hands of Lavagnoli artisans in the Friuli Venezia Giulia region. The FLOAT tray draws inspiration from the bold and graceful strokes of calligraphy, encapsulating the essence of Atlas·t. It represents our belief in an eternal flow, where there are no beginnings or endings. Instead, we continuously learn from our past and thoughtfully update for the present, embodying the rich cultural heritage of artisans and manufacturers from around the world.
