Founded in 2009 by artistic director Amélie du Passage, Petite Friture was created based on the ethos that objects have souls which are ultimately an extension of their creators. Each collection and product within the brand is poetic and bold, having a strong aesthetic that is playful, elegant and whimsical but yet retains a graphic geometry.
Petite Friture are now officially a purpose driven company! This is a corporate status in France that means they are legally obliged to social and environmental commitments a priority. The Petite Friture lighting collection is created by new talents, designers and manufacturers, collaborating together to produce pendant lights, table lamps, floor lamps and wall lights that all embody a shared vision of success and beauty. Every product is made in Europe and only the best specialist manufacturers are used for each specific piece.
An epicentre of design creativity, Petite Friture collaborates with over 30 independent designers to create stunning yet humble pieces to fill their catalogue which includes both furniture and lighting. By far their most iconic and world-renowned light from the catalogue is the Vertigo Pendant, which has been installed in permanent exhibitions at MoMA and the MAD, truly encapsulating the design ethos and innovation of the Petite Friture brand.
