Chalk, plaster, lime and clay come together with curly wool, delicate porcelain or thick cotton for an immaculate but textured white look. Matte, powdered or cracked materials with a special touch and a comforting look. In a context of global pollution and over-consumption, we fantasise about this specific white, the one of cocoons, the North Pole or lunar landscapes: eternal spaces conducive to contemplation. The creators work with these materials derived from nature and confront themselves with white, raw, pure. An organic white that takes us back to our origins. Point-blank.

Ceramics, Paola Paronetto

Since last season, white is back in full fashion, a « polar » look that is not about to melt away… The winter silhouettes are timeless and are once again immersed in an off-white, plaster-white or even shell-white, subtle landscape.
