For Éric Schmitt, being a mysterious and discreet person, it is more seductive not to reveal too much. This is why Christofle naturally identified the Maison’s values in the designs of artistic pieces such as elegant boxes, candlesticks, and votives that subtly illuminate its surroundings.
Schmitt chose to work with alabaster, one of his favorite materials to master, for its opalescence, giving silver a celestial candor. Borghini marble’s delicately veined whiteness inspired him as well. Rare and in limited editions, Éric Schmitt’s pieces are highly desirable. Iconic to this first collaboration collection, is a centerpiece created in a limited number of 50 and a glove box created in 12 pieces exclusively by the master silversmiths of the Haute-Orfèvrerie workshops.
