New at MAVEN: Petite Friture

Wonderful + Whimsical

Established ten years ago, Petite Friture is owned by Paris-based Amelie du Passage.  The brand doesn’t have in-house designers but rather curates a community of independent designers and manufacturers, with 60% of their products made in French ateliers and 95% made in Europe. Petite Friture is an 'entreprise à mission' or 'purpose-driven company'.  This is a French legal status that requires companies to generate profit in a way that will benefit customers' health and the planet.

Here are a few of our favourite pieces from this wonderful brand:

Vertigo Pendant Light
Created by designer Constance Guisset, the Vertigo Pendant Light is already firmly established as an icon, being part of the MOMA permanent collection and loved by designers throughout the world.  Its light, airy design is enhanced by polyurethane ribbons, and ranging from 110cm – 200cm in diameter; it’s a true statement piece.

Designed by BrichetZiegler Studio, Week-End is a range of garden furniture in a wide and wonderful colour palette. Made of aluminium, it is light, as well as being water, UV and rust resistant. So many of the pieces would look right at home indoors too.

 Neotenic Table Lamp

Inspired by pasta, the Neotenic table lamp is the fruit of Petite Friture’s collaboration with design studio Jumbo.  It is a statement table lamp with voluptuous, organic dimensions.  It comes in two heights, 26cm and 51cm and four colours.  We can’t wait to get this cutie-patootie into the shop (back in stock in September!).

Drawing her inspiration from the world of baking, designer Pia Chevalier visualised her mugs as a sweet treat. The oversized handle emulates the shape of a doughnut and the enamel finish gives a nod to a sugar-glazed coating. Even the names of the colours they’ve been given, Lemon, Vanilla & Bubblegum have us licking our lips.

Australian designer duo Daniel-Emma created Cherry, a simple and minimal suspension lamp, comprised of an aluminium cone atop a sphere. The soft light produced by the diffuser reflects off the mirror finish.  It reminds us of ice cream cones with a cherry on top.
