Design Parade 2022
Pétanque is the perfect excuse to spend a few hours with your amis in the village square (did you remember the Pastis?)
C'était Hyères... ABOUT LAST NIGHT. A few highlights from yesterday evening’s Vilebrequin Pétanque Tournament in Provence. It was so great getting to celebrate the traditions of the South, the world’s greatest sport (we still stand by that!), and the young faces of French design.
Cut from natural rock gathered along the Mediterranean’s Calanques, the Pétanque Set by artist Victor Fleury Ponsin for Vilebrequin celebrates the permanence of the sport and its evolutions over the ages. Featuring boules from legendary manufacturer la boule bleue de marseille the hollowed-out rock is prised open by the player using a custom aluminium key.
