Paris Design Week: Lucile Viaud and the “géoverrerie”

Lucile Viaud has a very specific signature: she invented a marine glass that she develops from algae and shells, and designs accessories and tableware collections that she self-publishes. Find her creations at the Intramuros Concept Store.

A graduate of the Boulle School, Lucile Viaud has gradually specialized in the development of bio-sourced materials and explores the links between research, design and craftsmanship in her approach. As an extension of her diploma project, this determined young woman works in a circular economy principle, transforming local resources into exceptional materials in order to manufacture products in a given territory, thanks to local know-how.

Verre marin Glaz, Lucille Viaud

Resident at Ateliers de Paris in 2016, she founded Atelier Lucile Viaud and created her brand, Ostraco, labeled Observeur du design 2018: by promoting Breton marine resources (shells, algae, ridges, etc.), she designed a sea plaster and deposits the Glaz marine glass. The workshop is distinguished in the sustainable development category of the Cré’Acc 2018 competition and is today supported by the Emergys Bretagne system. The objective is to duplicate this approach in other territories.
Since then, she has launched her own brand, and created limited editions at the request of great chefs.
Today, she refines her device around her creations by signing each piece, in order to find the place, the date of fusion and the specificity of the glass of each: the invention of a ”geo-glassmaking” which retraces the total history of each element of its collections.
