« Joy in life, complicity and creativity » is the motto of  the creators of GARGANTUA: a duo formed by Sylvie Loiseauand Claire-Anne Willemin. Their contemporary line of tablewareis uncompromising in form, with asymmetrical and slick lines, reflecting the latest trend in designand decoration.
Each piece is hand-made, demonstrating the quality of French know-how in shaping sandstoneand porcelain. The creators have alternated rough and glazed textures for a surprising contrast, both visual and tactile, and combined them with sophisticated colours. GARGANTUA is the expression of a new lifestyle.
Tea- and coffee-cups, pitchers, sake-pots, plates, presentation trays……. all compose a rich and varied line for a playful table where you can mix and match the colours of the tableware and placematsto build a multicolour or monochrome tabletop.
New graceful shapes of mugs(“High Tea”) and coffee-goblets (“Slim Coffee”) have been added to the existing collection. Sylvie and Claire-Anne have also introduced 4 new shades: lemon, pumpkin, light-green and parma.
The new ORIGAMI line, made exclusively of white sandstone, is inspired by informal paper folding and asymmetrical lines.
The two designers are represented at over 60 distributors and sale outlets in France and abroad. They have also created their own design-agencyand collaborate with prestigious brands such as: Philippe Deshoulières, Habitat, etc…
