1997. Tableware for our "follies".
In 1996, we had contacted some young Barcelona designers to help us design specific tableware for our petits
fours. After several months’ work, we came up with the definitive range. The pattern followed was based on origami shapes, embodied in thin silver-coated
sheets which were shaped to match their purpose. Each piece had its raison d’être, its own personality, which was irrevocably linked to a particular petit
four, while each petit four was conceived in terms of its particular receptacle. The impact in the restaurant was a sensation. These items marked the beginning
of our relationship with the world of design, which has subsequently continued in other initiatives. As part of this reassessment of petits fours, we needed
to think of a name for these preparations, and from the following year onwards they came to be known as follies.
