Saint-Louis Launches “Folia” Designed by Noé Duchaufour-Lawrance

Saint-Louis is taking its 431 years of hand-making history to the next level, launching “Folia,” designed by Noé Duchaufour-Lawrance. The 25-piece collection features crystal and wood, referencing the dense forest lands of Saint-Louis’ home in Moselle, France. The collection’s barware includes a highball glass, shot glass, tumblers, round decanter, wine glass, water glass, champagne flute, and water pitcher. Going beyond tableware, the collection also features a  side table, bookcase, and console. Folia includes two exceptional pieces, as well—a chartreuse green vase and a mirror—both in a limited-edition series of 100 pieces.

Duchaufour-Lawrance, the Paris-based designer and interior architect, took over 30 months to create this collection, working closely with a crystal manufacturer. His inspiration grew from the roots of where Saint-Louis is based, and from the first collection he produced with the house. This time, however, the designer wanted to express the re-imagination of a leaf, translated into a geometric and contemporary form.

“Even if my formal language of expression differs radically from theirs, nature and craftsmanship are for me the driving forces of contemporary modernity,” said Duchaufour-Lawrance. “I don’t believe in the future of rotational molding and plastic injection.”
