INTERCONTINENTAL SCENOGRAPHY

SANTA’S MAILBOX


The 5* hotel Intercontinental in Marseille contacted me because they had the idea for a long time to make a Santa’s mailbox for their guests’s children, so that they could  deliver their Christmas message to the big man !

I was enchanted with their commission as Christmas is a really inspiring moment of the year for me.

I immediatly saw the mailbox in my mind, an old wooden box, with a beautiful burnt typography on it, inviting the children to post ther Christmas wishes.

I worked with a wood craftsman, showing him my sketches. He made the mailbox from a series of beautiful oak offcuts.We patinated it giving this old and traditional look, transforming the pieces of wood into a magical dream for  kids !

i made the Chirstmas cards in a beautiful craft paper, with raw edges and added a twig pencil with pompoms.
