Y'A PAS LE FEU AU LAC was formed by master cabinet makers Grégory and Marie Bodel and designer FX Balléry. The team's passion for creation, their love of wood as well as their origins in the Jura Mountains of France, gathered them around a common project: to create a French brand of wooden contemporary, useful and elegant objects and small furniture items. And so they turned to compelling designers and the expert wood craftsmen of Jura, who have practiced wood handicrafts - turning out finely detailed, functional accessories and toys - for generations.
The name of the company translates roughly to, "there's no fire on the lake". Based on a French expression, it means "no need to rush". Inspired by traditional craft arts and current technology, Y'A PAS LE FEU AU LAC small accessories, tableware, vessels and furniture primarily use wood as a poetic, aesthetic and functional vector. Created by a collective of designers from around the world, the Y'A PAS LE FEU AU LAC products are an invitation to take your time, to contemplate your environment and to share with friends.
As a graduate of ENSCI, Godefroy de Virieu gives a renewed impulse to craft and industrial productions, showing their potential through new practices and uses. Passionately fond of materials, processing techniques and know-how, de Virieu pays special attention to develop the shape and material and to restore gestures and traditional resources. These human encounters and the exchanges that follow, give birth to articles designed both for daily or extraordinary uses, from limited editions to mass production.
