"À Table ! Le repas, tout un art", an exhibition not to be missed, now running until 24 October 2021.
If there is one notion of pleasure associated with France, it is its culture of fine dining. Naturally, it is also one of the founding experiences of the art of travel according to Air France, which is committed to promoting fine French cuisine throughout the world. And because elegance is essential in enhancing the pleasure of the senses, Air France has always called on experts in the field of French tableware to promote its fine dining in the sky.
Now extended until 24 October 2021, the exhibition "À Table! Le repas, tout un art" features more than 1,000 pieces and traces the fascinating history of fine French dining, from antiquity to the present day. It also highlights Air France’s exceptional heritage.
During their tour, visitors will be able to discover some of the most beautiful creations presented on board:
. The exquisite “Parisien Spécial” service in Limoges porcelain from the Bernardaud and Haviland manufactures with the Saint Louis and Baccarat glassware service;
. The Concorde “André Putman” service from 1993: white porcelain, highlighted by a light blue line, pure and original shapes, such as the salt and pepper duo composing a two-coloured cube;
. And the emblematic Jean Picart Le Doux service adorned with the winged seahorse, the company’s historical symbol.
Throughout its history, Air France has never ceased to be interested in the aesthetics of lines and shapes, as reflected in the care taken in the choice of tableware in all its cabins. Each piece has been specially made in line with the company's image by the greatest designers.
Today, Air France is continuing this tradition and has entrusted its La Première and Business tableware design to the talented Jean-Marie Massaud as well as Bernardaud and Guy Degrenne. In this way, a feast for the eyes is followed by a feast for the taste buds.
