Jacques Rayet of Pouenat Ferronnier is doing an amazing thing. As one of France's finest metal working companies, they continue to work on the most prestigious projects. If, in Jacques' opinion, the designer displays a genuine understanding of metal, he gives them carte blanche to design whatever collection they like, using the expertise of the Pouenat craftspeople.
It is clear that, for Jacques to make the offer, they must also have a distinctive design voice of their own. The result is really a collection of mini-catalogues, each with its own personality, full of the most adventurous work, united by the quality of the metal-working. Pouenat are showing at Decorex, stand C96: do not miss them!
