The idea of PyroPet came to designer Thorunn Arnadottir while studying at the Royal College of Art in London in 2011. The idea came to Thorunn when she was thinking about the way people use candles: "One day as I watched the chubby body of a jolly Santa Claus shaped candle slowly melt, deform and perish into a sad pool of wax, I wondered if I could elevate this common place ritual sacrifice into a true theatre of the macabre in wax." She came up with the idea of embedding a metal skeleton within a cat shaped candle. A sinister form, lurking, biding it's time, waiting to be revealed. After exhibiting the cat candles (called “The Devil’s Pet” back then) in Milan and at her graduation show in London, they quickly gained a lot of attention on the internet. She joined forces with Dan Koval and they launched a Kickstarter campaign to finance their little startup. The campaign was a great success, in only 4 days they had reached their funding goal and at the end of the campaign they had reached 250% of their initial goal. Thorunn and Dan founded PyroPet Candle Company and are now selling the candles in shops and galleries all around the world.

Cash Essentials
Every day billions of banknotes and coins change hands, enabling transactions and contributing to economic growth. Banknotes and coins are a collective good. They are issued by central banks or monetary authorities, distributed by banks and spent by individuals. Because it is a common good, the evolution of cash is shaped collectively. Central banks may decide on the design and the denomination mix; commercial banks facilitate the distribution by deploying ATMs and branches; retailers facilitate its acceptance; but it is ultimately the consumer who drives demand. The purpose of this website is to provide an unbiased source of information and a forum for debate on the future of cash. This website was launched in April 2016. The original content is based on the white paper "Cash Essentials - Beyond Payments".

Louison Editions Paris
In Russia, a writer, it is a fate. A Writer is by definition a dissident. Tolstoy was excommunicated, Dostoïevski sentenced to death and pardoned just after the beating of the drum, Gogol was buried alive, Soljenitsyne, Pasternak, Boulgakov, they are legions, these devils of the beautiful letters. The thaw, which allows from time to time to publish officially these dissidents, never lasts in Russia. You should not be a prophet to guess that the door closes again. Created in 2015 in Paris, Louison Editions is a publishing house dedicated to the modern and independent Russian literature. Its mission is to publish free authors, high-quality disruptive works literary, which each translate a vision of the world. Very soon, some people will become the spokesmen of big imperial Russia, others will be asked to leave the territory, others else will be ravenous and will write masterpieces which we shall read only after their death. To be a writer in Russia, it is to sell the soul or to die on the stake of its books.

Studio Harcourt
“In France, one is not an actor if one has not had one’s picture taken by the Harcourt Studios” asserts Roland Barthes in Mythologies, 1957. Studio Harcourt Paris has a history that has been part of the collective unconscious for more than 80 years. Created in 1934 by an exceptional woman, Cosette Harcourt, the Lacroix brothers, press magnates, and Nina Ricci’s son, it draws its inspiration in the glamorous roots of the black and white cinema and rapidly becomes the place to be for celebrities. True visual memory of the 20th century, Studio Harcourt Paris still creates portraits of anonymous and celebrities. “Haute-couture” portrait, the photographer such as an artist creates a unique image, emotional and timeless. Each portrait reveals as story, skilful alchemy between light and shadow. Light ennobles the sacred pledge of eternity, shadows sublimate the secrets of the unconscious.
Un début prometteur
Founded in 1973 by Serge July and Jean-Paul Sartre, Libération is a daily newspaper that perpetuates the spirit and ideals established during the May 68 movement. It originated from the desire to create a populist, left wing, independent and engaged newspaper. The first issue was released in kiosques on the 22nd of May 1973 and would become the start of what would be an interactive relationship with its audience. The daily would evolve into a more standardised newspaper with International,Cultural and Media sections, but was still able to stand out from the crowd thanks to its exceptional front pages and its portraits. A new formula would be implemented in January, the daily would see a significant overhaul, with a focus on predicting futur trends and initiating debates, all the while maintaining its initial strength: journalistic innovation.
