Éric Jansen, Daniel Féau, 2024




“Craftsmanship and the virtues of slowness are the starting point of the French studio YMER&MALTA. At the helm, Valérie Maltaverne has been able to reinterpret the traces of the rich Gallic heritage in the pursuit of manufacturing excellence, which she translates into the creation of luxurious furniture with a strong transgressive and poetic component.”

Gloria Escribano, Room Diseno, 2023
