La Cornue x Kongo : an unprecedented worldwide collaboration
To celebrate its 110th anniversary, La Cornue is venturing into an audacious and modern collaboration to transform six of its masterpieces into works of art.
For La Cornue, Kongo has transposed his language and signature graphics onto the cooker enamel, bringing a whole new way to express himself and his repertoire and creating a brand-new aesthetic for the cookers.
It took over a year of dialogue between the two realms to bring this unprecedented worldwide collaboration to life: six exceptional cookers that truly express both traditional expertise and modern graphic styling.
Whilst the six cookers form a coordinating set, each one is a masterpiece in its own right. With beautiful colours, various thicknesses of enamel produced through several stages of firing, and graphics created using a stylus pen, the eye is drawn to the materials used. The intricately precise design and details make these pieces true works of art.
To highlight the unique, limited nature of this collaboration, each cooker bears the artist's signature on the left-hand brand plate, whilst the year 2018 is inscribed on the right-hand plate.
