François-Xavier fell into design at the age of 19, discovering it as a way to tell stories. Picnics, champagne, milk jugs, glasses of Burgundy and chocolate sponge are all included in his gourmet souvenirs of the past ten years. Favouring practical, simple, elegant design, F.X has created new imagery for the ten years to come.

‘I am always sorry to see restaurants rolling out carts that seem a rather sorry backdrop to the rich variety of forms and tastes presented. The cheeseboard is a real cabinet of curiosities and invitation to travel.’
