Haute facture (High quality handmade products)

Alice LEBLANC. Diploma project. DSAAD Product design. 2020

High-quality is characterized by the transformation of the matter in exceptional objects, thanks to the knowledge and the accurate gesture of craftsmen.

How can designers highlight the value of the knowledge coming from luxury? The context being very pragmatic, the project was conducted in partnership with Revol, a culinary porcelain factory. My project is divided into three proposals about the valorisation of Revol’s heritage and knowledge.

Historical Collection is a demonstration (?) of the updating process of objects from archives.

Revol Tangram is an educational game allowing the understanding of a porcelain object’s manufacturing process.

Women at Revol is an exhibition which allows to discover the manufacturing of porcelain objects, through women at Revol – their skills, their gestures and their stories.
