From May 3 to 8, 2017 at the Grand Palais, Paris.
During Révélations tradeshow, Jean‑Baptiste Auvray and Van Cleef & Arpels gave to the Robert Four – Aubusson gallery a sample of the “Nuages” tapestries created by the designer for the high jewellery Maison of the Place Vendôme.
Jean‑Baptiste Auvray in close collaboration with the Robert Four teams have pushed back the traditional tapestry techniques. They succeeded in introducing mohair wool into this creation, giving a cottony aspect to these cloud tapestries.
They also worked on a stitch size in relation to the large scale of the architecture, almost a play of pixels drawing the sky, giving to the space a feeling of exceptional quality.
