Étoile cosmique

Raymond Roussel

1923

Roussel made this little memento after he had lunch on July 29th, 1923 with the astronomer and writer, Camille Flammarion. He saved a star-shaped cookie from the occasion which he encased in a silver pendant with glass. The piece was sold after his death in 1933 and discovered by chance by Georges Bataille at a flea market. Bataille gave it to his then-lover, Dora Maar who kept it for the rest of her life.

Through the Keyhole - Solange Azagury-Partridge

“A collection of five precious objects designed as jewellery boxes.The box becomes the jewels. Each box tells its own story.

The ultimate grown-up toy for women. Flamboyant rainbow steps lead to a little dolls house that you can open. All its elements can be pulled apart and worn; the mirror ball hanging from the ceiling, the chinoiserie plique-à-jour screen, the shoes, the Chiavari chair…the phone becomes the ‘Ring’ ring. This private space for women is designed like a silk boudoir.“
