Les Igloos de Nuit Rayé (Striped)

DESCRIPTION

In sunlight, the Night Igloos are almost invisible. Only a few discreet details (a subtle groove, a little crater or a smooth curve) catch the eye. In the evening the paper thin porcelain lets candle light glow softly underneath. The Night Igloos are either smooth, striped or riddled, in matte porcelain. They are accompanied by a saucer.

DETAILS

  • Dimensions - 9cm diameter base (cup), 13cm diameter (plate), 8.5cm high
  • Materials: Matt white porcelain, handmade in France. Tealight candle included.
  • Care Instructions - To avoid being burnt, only handle the base of the igloo and move it while holding the saucer. Blow the candle out through the top of the igloo, as the cover will become quite hot.

ABOUT the MAKER

Tsé & Tsé Associées

Tsé & Tsé associées is a French design company, one of the very rare ones to have remained independent from its launching in 1991. It was founded by two Parisian designers, Sigolene Prébois and Catherine Lévy. 

The Tsé & Tsé team, comprised of less than ten people, masters the design of objects from their conception to their production and distribution. Prototypes are created in their workshop in the Bastille area of Paris. Every object requires special research in finding the best quality manufacturers. Noble materials are used, according to traditional know-how, that favour quality and long life for the objects. Because of this, lamps, dishes and furniture are made in small series, sometimes individually and rarely over 1000 item per year. Every item is unique, and these differences are Tsé & Tsé's inimitable signature.

The two designers began creating objects for themselves, in order to savour every moment of everyday living. The sense of wonder with which they see everyday objects shines through all their creations. Some years later, most of their objects have become bestsellers, while remaining as fresh and delightful as ever. Their latest creations fit in with the others to form an expanding, most original universe.
