Petite Friture is a French design manufacturer.
It was born from a hint of feeling, a bit of fascination and a lot of firm conviction.
A fad. For objects, their curves and their aspect. For their authors, their creativeness and their calling into question.
A vibration. For materials and their possible new applications.
And also a dash of frustration. To stop short in front of projects that are not manufactured.
So many tracks, and a feverish wish to follow them. Until it itched too hard.
Now we’re in the adventure, what could we add?
That we are totally electrified, sizzled, if ever that means anything. To meet emerging talents, to explore with them new techniques and savoir faire. And, but isn’t it obvious, to produce beautiful objects.
In short, we show our crazes. These objects that place the cursor at the exact point that makes us shudder. Do you get the idea?
