If these elegant, bohemian, 100% handblown glass pieces look like something you'd find in an effortlessly chic, airy garret apartment in the 7eme in Paris after waking up from a fabulous absinthe dream...it's because that's totally what they are.
Founded by husband-and-wife team Sébastian and Valentina Nobile (he’s a glassblower, she’s an artist), La Soufflerie's everyday pieces are inspired by ancient Roman and Gallic silhouettes and made from recycled glass in their Paris-based workshop. “We are a group of artisans now,” says Valentina. “We use ancien forms and techniques—we blow mainly sitting down using a clay oven—to make utilitarian everyday objects.” Their beautiful, slightly asymmetrical pieces may look perfectly delicate, but, mon Dieu! They are dishwasher safe.
