The Komon daggers were designed to be displayed, each one next to an ancient dagger belonging to the Musée des Beaux Arts in Dijon. They are made of organic damascus steel, a new process of damascus steel production that I invented in 2008.
They are streamlined in form, in one solid bar of steel, with an abundant motif which appears on the extremity of the object... This piece was awarded the prize for “Intelligence of the hand” by the Bettencourt Foundation in 2011.

Alain-Charles Perrot is the architect who restored the Grand Palais, the Opéra Garnier, the Conciergerie, the Sainte Chapelle, the list is too long… At the end of 2014, he asked me to create his academician’s sword for his induction in June. He wanted to include one of the dancers of the Danse de Carpeaux, which stands in front of the Opéra... Not wanting to transform the object into a totem of references, I integrated the Sainte Chapelle in the proportions that the design rendered possible, the Grand Palais in the organic damascus steel, and I tried to find the perfect place for the agile, altogether sensual dancer.
