Making the stand of the company, the famous Italian designer again, as two years ago, makes a joke with the original and unconventional furniture . Ferruccio Laviani leaves a huge yellow hole in the chic mahogany desk on thin curved legs and gilt vignette with the worktop covered by Moroccan leather, mixing classic Rococo Louis XV with a modern design.
Based on the fact that the Veuve Clicquot should be surrounded by unbanal things, Ferruccio Laviani invented a chair in a couple with the table. It is an elegant classic leather chair with armrests, a broad back and again a through yellow hole, but in the form of a star.

The Italian designer’s fantasy on the theme of a table, at which Barbe-Nicole Clicquot Ponsardin worked, relished the company, which is still managing her affairs. The desk of the widow Franz Clicquot is a symbol of the vast empire that she has managed to build, without getting up from her desk at which she was conducting endless correspondence with suppliers and customers around the world.
