Patrick LATREILLE studied at L’Ecole du Patrimoine in Avignon, his other studies included graphic design and the cinema.  A house painter, but also an artist in his spare time, Patrick a sea-lover, has no equal when it comes to sublimating a place! From floor to ceiling, inside and outside, using lime, earth, polished concrete or naturel pigments, his sensitivity, feeling for light and mastery of traditional techniques will seduce you. When deciding to renovate a dwelling the first thing people think of is colour. Anybody can give a room a lick of paint! Unfortunately, the truth is far more complex. Patrick is here to avoid disaster.  Charred Sienna, Prussian Blue, Powder Pink, Aquamarine, Marigold or Sunshine invigorate the atmosphere and, why not, Black for classic chic. Dare colour with Patrick and in a few paint-strokes your dreams, both indoor and outdoor, will come true.

Pierre BAUMANN Plastic Artist

Visual artist, sculptor, photographer, draftsman, art researcher, writer, creator…

What do we want to do with Art? Pierre BAUMAN wishes to re-think how we do and use art, as an experimental experience. Pierre, an epicurean, outstanding cook, is trying to open all the fields of this discipline, to surpass the systematic academic research and go elsewhere.  His project upholds the concept that ‘art’ – because it is an experience, a philosophy of gesture – holds in and by itself its own theory.  To do is to think.   Thinking is taking, retaking, learning and undertaking.

This synthesis of empowerment fits fully into the field of visual arts. We do not dissociate what is the creation and the theory of art. Central to Pierre’s concept : the creation of a house and the life that will be led there.

Un jour Un Objet – Concept Store – Corinne BERARD

Corinne BERARD concretized her dream when she opened her concept store “Un Jour Un Objet Concept”.  Corinne’s strength is her sensitivity, her feel for aesthetics, her love of design and architecture all of which transpire in her concept shop.  Her style? Here you will find a jewel, a sofa, raw and natural materials, either elegant contemporary objects or handmade limited editions, a whole universe of colour to suit a lifestyle be it Scandinavian or ethnic, a cultural mix.  Her spirit? To create a warm atmosphere where human relationships are privileged over the purely mercantile aspect.  Corinne has her own idea of what a shop should offer. Out of curiosity push the door open and discover her universe where friendliness is paramount. Her definition of an object?  It should accompany, inspire or reassure us, either simple or sophisticated, to offer or share. Simple things, pretty material, not over famous brand names, that go straight to the heart.

Functional but beautiful everyday objects that touch us, have a history…Welcome to Corinne’s world!

Derrière le Pendle Project se cache un citoyen du monde amoureux de Marseille, un ancien windsurfeur pro, un géo trouve-tout, rieur et spontané qui va au bout de ses envies. Les seuls bancs qu’il n’a pas séchés sont ceux de l’école de la vie. Il en retire maintenant tous les diplômes.

Fabien Pendle naît et grandi en Angleterre, passe sa jeunesse du côté de Montpellier, s’installe à Tarifa, passe quelques temps à Hawaii et parcours le monde avant de venir se poser à Marseille sa ville de cœur, où il fonde une famille. Encore adolescent, c’est dans l’Hérault qu’il découvre le windsurf en compagnie de son frère Mathieu. Mordu par le côté fun de ce nouveau sport, il y consacre tout son temps libre et décide même d’arrêter l’école pour percer dans le sport. Il progresse très rapidement jusqu’à intégrer le team professionnel Fanatic qui lui donne les moyens de ses ambitions au niveau français et international.  Champion de France de Windsurf en 1989, 6ème mondial en 1992, il se fait connaître dans les vagues, puis en slalom et enfin en course racing dans les années reine de ce sport marqué par une débauche d’équipements et de développement technologiques.

« Si je ne perce pas dans le sport, je serai ébéniste » avait déclaré Fabien à ses parents au moment d’arrêter l’école à 16 ans. Des premières maquettes d’avion en balsa faites avec son père bricoleur et inventeur, il garde en effet depuis les débuts son amour pour le bois et le métal qui vont devenir sa signature. C’est à l’invitation de l’entrepreneur Michel Gamet qu’il va faire montre de tout son talent pour aménager les boutiques de la marque Kulte qui a décidé d’étendre son réseau de distribution un peu partout en France. Il décide d’y travailler le contre-plaqué de façon ludique, fonctionnelle et personnalisable pour coller au plus prêt à l’univers de la marque marseillaise. S’en suivront la création de structures démontables pour l’Open club de l’Olympique de Marseille, des voiles d’ombrages utilisant un système de poulies éprouvé dans l’univers nautique, et bien d’autres innovations guidé par le bon sens et ses expériences. Aujourd’hui l’actualité, du Pendle Project c’est une gamme d’éléments de mobilier (montants, caissons et étagères) en 3 tailles à assembler très facilement selon vos envies et besoins. Une collection 100% made in France.
