Edith Duprez-Chenu is a pattern designer and illustrator at Edith and Co Design.
She is graduated in Applied Arts and Textile Design, and creation is essential for her to thrive on a daily basis.
Passionate about colours, materials and patterns in everything around her, she strives to capture the beauty of life through fluid and intuitive brush strokes.
To do so, she particularly likes watercolour, a medium which has its own expression, a delicate nature, and which creates unpredictable colours!
Inspired by nature, the Quintessence range unveils floral and abstract patterns that are simultaneously timeless, poetic, and contemporary.
Clairefontaine has joined forces with K-3, a brand designed by the famous designer Kenzo Takada a few months before his death, to create a unique stationery box.
This elegant box with flap, with black velvet interior, contains many accessories specially designed for lovers of writing and calligraphy: notebooks, pads, bookmarks, memo pad, correspondence cards with envelopes, ink bottle and an exceptional glass nib. The ideal gift for all artists at heart.
The box, as well as some of the objects it contains, carry a Kintsugi, as a tribute to Japanese know-how. This ancestral art invites you to repair a broken object by highlighting its flaws and scars with gold leaf, a tradition dear to the creative world of K三.
For Kenzo Takada, the collaboration with Clairefontaine was an obvious choice.
The artist's boundless creativity manifested itself on a daily basis in different forms: painting, calligraphy... The creative tools included in this box were an integral part of his daily life.
