Coloured silver gilded Rosa Mundi mirror

A Paris chez Antoinette Poisson x diptyque

Back in the 18th century, domino paper was also used to decorate objects, or to create lining for chests or covers for books. Inspired by this tradition, A Paris chez Antoinette Poisson creates made-to-measure decorative objects in its workshop.

The lost art of domino is here reborn in this silver gilded mirror, adorned with the Rosa Mundi motif designed exclusively for diptyque.

Craftmanship

Julie Stordiau, Vincent Farelly and Jean-Baptiste Martin discovered layers of domino paper artifacts on the walls, accumulated over the centuries on a restoration site. In an effort to reconstruct the found relics, they started researching the lost art of domino craft and became captivated by its history. Replaced around the end of the 18th century by the emergence of continuous printed wallpaper in large rolls, dominos used to be printed one sheet at a time from etched wooden plates, and hand-painted with stencils to add color. When treasures of domino paper were found in diptyque’s archives, both houses came together in a fortuitous collaboration to create the Rosa Mundi pattern.

A Paris chez Antoinette Poisson

A Paris chez Antoinette Poisson

The bazaar also brings together friends of the Maison – “les amis de diptyque”.
We invited artists, illustrators and designers who share our approach to create unique objects specially: printed boxes by Antoinette Poisson, pyjamas with dreamlike motifs from the artist Pierre Marie, porcelain artefacts from the painter Julien Colombier.
It’s one way of bringing our family together around new projects, which will continue to emerge over the coming months.
