« “In an age when craft and nature have become undervalued, out of conviction and our love for local culture, we have chosen to honour the professions of the Côte des Légendes—land and sea, farmers and fishermen and -women—in an atmosphere that reflects the rich poetry of Finistère, with its marriage of the elements and cultural tradition.
The fisherman who sets out to sea before dawn each morning and, despite his daily toil, comes home feeling a sense of harmony with the elements; the fisherwoman who must take a philosophical view on our times in order to carry out her work with respect for nature.”» Laetitia Debeausse, Corporate Yogi
We have often observed fishermen at work and are always moved by that unique moment when they set out to sea before dawn, when the elements and the life they contain are tangible in the dimness. Heading out into the open water, feeling connected to the power of the elements and surrounded by that deep indigo. Our colours are also those of sunset on a clear day: the pink and green of Finistère, between the earth and the sea foam.
Our love for the region and its culture is visible throughout the dining room, in the décor, tableware and colour scheme, and also in art. Lights take the shape of fishing creels, while plates and glasses reflect the sand, seaweed, earth and colours of the coast. Pride of place is given to hemp and linen, the natural textiles of our region. Totem sculptures, like little living spirits, evoke ancient Finistère and the menhirs and engraved stones still standing in magical sites scattered throughout the Côte des Légendes.
Art expert Amélie du Chalard immediately understood the atmosphere we wanted to create. She introduced us to the artists who have helped us fill the dining room and the rest of our interiors with a visual poetry which translates the world better than any words could do.
Our tableware was created in the same spirit of reconnecting with the elements. Ceramist Marion Graux drew on this inspiration to design our custom-made dishes. Our glasses were made by Lucile Viaud, a designer and biomimicry researcher who has developed a glass paste made from abalone shells. Our platters are made from reclaimed wood sculpted by Camille of Maison Rivages, a woodworker and surfer-craftsman who makes his own surfboards.
