Born in 1954, Thomas Bastide grew up watching Scandinavian master glass-makers at work, and glass-with the multiple creative possibilities it offers-has become a true passion for him. A graduate from the Penninghen School of Graphic Arts and ENSAAMA in Paris, and the Pilchuck School in Seattle, he began his professional career with Raymond Loewy, a star of the design world.

Laure Verchère was a long-time journalist for Elle Décoration. She is the author of numerous books, including Signed Sybille de Margerie and Le Grand Hôtel & Café de la Paix, published by Flammarion.
