"It's been 10 years now since I had made the choice of Design. These years have seen it evolving. Indeed, Design has become more and more visible in everyone’s daily life. This is why it is needed to question ourselves about the objects that surround us and their legitimacy. At a time where production Design volume is constantly increasing, how can we justify the role of the Designer?
Today I feel the need to show and demonstrate that we can think design differently, on a more reasonable scale, by paying more attention to the country of origin and the way we build of our objects. Our local territory reveals treasures and know-how that are being lost. It is our duty as designers to enhance them and to prove that such a short circuits are not only still possible but that they are above all much richer, qualitative and therefore sustainable.
By answering to these questions, Margaux Keller Collections was born in June 2019 with the launch of our 01 series which pays homage to the sea, to the sea view. The adventure goes on and today we are pleased to disclose our new odyssey name Black Mistral. »
