Revisiting the French traditions of “savoir-faire” marquetry, inlaying, and carving, French design studio Ymer&Malta creates limited edition contemporary furniture and design objects. Produced using timeless materials – marble, leather, glass, and wood – Ymer&Malta pieces are precious objects that are built to last and remain relevant far into the future.

Ymer&Malta Director Valérie Maltaverne will give a presentation on the philosophy and process of her company, and discuss three exceptional works from the studio’s marquetry collection designed by Benjamin Graindorge, Sylvain Rieu-Piquet, and Sebastian Bergne.

YMER&MALTA talk is organized in collaboration with Oui Design, an initiative of the Cultural Services of the French Embassy in the United States, supported by Institut français-Paris, the French Ministry of Culture and Communication, FACE Foundation, and the Florence Gould Foundation.
