One swallow makes a summer

The opening display window, Spring 2017

The Origamis display window for autumn is a variation on the principle established when the shop was inaugurated in May 2017.

A veritable invitation to go abroad, the opening combined the fantasy, diversity and poetry specific to the Relais & Châteaux’s locations: a bunch of unusual objects spring from a half-open travel case; from the lobster musicians to the corkscrew dancers, the Chinese dragon to the Spanish fan, all of these objects, selected from the fields of travel, gastronomy or leisure activities, constitute a playful getaway at the heart of a dream.

“Making of” the Origami display window

Squirrels, hot-air balloons, whales, mountains and paper aeroplanes that seem to come straight out of a child’s imaginings.

  1. 45 maps
  2. 30 origami models
  3. 130 origamis


The origamis are made from real geographic maps (IGN, Michelin, etc.).


These are produced in a variety of shapes and sizes.
