Emblematic of La Rochère, the Bee or Abeille collection is steeped in history, while displaying its more contemporary character than ever. And timeless. Its meticulous aesthetic and robust style give it a value that is as decorative as it is practical. It was on the occasion of Napoleon’s coronation ceremony that the arms, crests, and heraldic figures of the New Empire were officially chosen.
The Bee then made its appearance in a very discreet way, by the sole wish of the emperor. For no particular reason, he used them everywhere.They were found on court cloaks, leather and upholstery, carpets, and flags. A travel kit in blue morocco, gilded with small irons on a background of a bee pattern, which had belonged to the emperor and kept at the Carnavalet museum, was thus the source of inspiration for this collection.
Abeille is available in all formats and is able to vary its colours to reinvent itself. From the glass to the egg cup, we enjoy finding its mark on each type of support
Its meticulous aesthetic and robust style give it a value that is as decorative as it is practical. Discreet yet remarkable, it finds its place on all tables.
La Rochère has made a name for itself through its taste for innovation, and thanks to products that have become emblematic, such as the bee collection inspired by Napoleon’s coat of arms, or the famous glass brick commissioned by Le Corbusier for his famous ‘Cité Refuge’.
The ice cream cup also quickly found great success with professional and private customers, for a relaxing get-together or a tasting, sharing a moment of pleasure.
