chez cartier

a beautiful sneak at cartier paris headquarters’s secret room where designers are coming up with new things. thanks to the great mister terestchenko.

“In a little room next to the workshop itself, there is a library full of books and magazines on botanic and wild life to support the inspiration of the designers.

Some of them are very common publications but handy enough to study the general anatomy of a panther, a giraffe, a turtle etc…

There are also some rare books. First, the project is sculpted in a piece of wax in different variations, sometimes painted to imitate the gems.

After a long process and final approval, the model in wax, turned into precious stones, is simply tucked away in a chocolate box, a Godiva chocolat box to be precise.
