This brand brings back to the contemporary trends and luxury design the colorful straw marquetry, giving items for daily use a special twist. Breaking the boundaries of classic marquetry, Valerie is dedicated to straw, a simple, adaptable and natural material that can be rustic and modern at the same time. Their creations are inspired by movement and often merge straw with other materials such as metal, stone and leather. From them, expect to see furniture, lighting, wall panels, decorations, paintings and even fashion accessories.

According to Marie Barthes, you can find several forms, rhythms, order and disorder in every single aspect of life. Since 2009, she created her collection of objects, lightings and mirror sculptures made of extraordinary and luxurious materials, where art and functionality are one. Those objects are then metamorphosed into peculiar and unique art pieces. “Revelations Show at Grand Palais”, allowed her to meet exciting new professional collaborators, as “Tassin Cuir”, a French heritage artisan atelier, with whom she collaborated for “Guerlain”. Always ready to learn, Marie confesses that sculpture is not only her work but her real passion.

Manipulating steel, folding, cutting, welding, then polishing it until it shines or transforming the surfaces through rust or black hematite patinas, her sculptures reflect and respond to that nature. Her work is inspired by the nature that surrounds her: rocks, branches, layers, vegetation, landscapes. She loves to suppress the empty space of a monumental sheet of paper, filling it with the visual sensations that this nature provokes. The abstract interlacing forms, harmonious and complex, rugged and fragile and weathered by the changing seasons provide her with endless possibilities and an unlimited creative freedom.
