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.
