‘Artist’s Palate’ recipe cards and box
Moynat, James Cropper, and Baddeley Brothers
Since 2009, in a tribute to Artists’ Cookbook, published by MoMA in 1977, our back page has been dedicated to the favourite recipes of the world’s greatest artists. For our Salone extravaganza, we invited James Cropper and Baddeley Brothers to create some recipe cards, and tasked luxury leather expert Moynat with crafting a sophisticated case to display the collection. Its bespoke case, made from slate grey leather, is inlaid with a blue leather asterisk, using Moynat’s exceptional expertise.
Established in Paris in 1849, Moynat is France’s oldest trunk-maker. Pioneering innovations include the ‘Limousine’ trunk, dating back to 1902 and still in production. Decidedly niche until 2010, when it was bought by LVMH’s CEO Bernard Arnault, the heritage luggage brand has diversified superlatively under the creative direction of Hermès veteran Ramesh Nair, excelling, naturally, in leather craftsmanship and motif marquetry. www.moynat.com
