“Gentle visual caress on a soft surface.
Interlacing invisible fragile threads.
Sweet sacred moments to embrace,”
An article which talks about the launch of the Market Place 1.618 Paris. The Market Place 1.618 is a virtual shop of stylish, beautiful, ethical and sustainable products. We are proud to be mentioned in this article amongst some of the great movers of sustainable luxury products like Stella Mc Cartney.
Translation of an extract of the article:
“Launched in 2009, the 1.618 Sustainable Luxury concept store offers an ephemeral lifestyle boutique in Paris dedicated to the new ethical and sustainable luxury, bringing together an international community of brands, entrepreneurs, visionaries and committed creatives from all fields of business. the art of living: design, mobility, gastronomy, new tech, fashion, jewelery, perfume ... All already adhered 10 years ago to the Charter of the movement which specifies "We believe that beauty, durability, creation, quality, respect and emotion, are the new luxury codes of the 21st century ". Its founder and director Barbara Coignet identifies and selects each year with a committee of independent experts the most committed, the most creative and the most inspiring brands.
As the community grows and the demand for luxury and sustainable products explodes, 1.618 launched on July 15, 2019 its online marketplace.1618-paris.com platform.
Barbara Coignet explains: "We wanted to meet the growing demand of aesthetic and exigent consumers, who demand transparency and commitment, for premium and eco-responsible alternatives, which have style but also are ethical and sustainable. The Market Place 1.618 offers a desirable selection of products for consumption that makes sense. Very beautiful quality and innovative products, all manufactured according to ethical standards and respectful of the environment.
So what's on this online store? Fairminded JEM gold jewelery, UJET design eco-scooters, Eve and Daphne natural fragrances and organic soaps, Valentine Gauthier vegetable leather shoes, eco-friendly watches made from recycled Baume materials, wooden furniture and recycled belts by LyZadie Design Studio or paper decorative objects created around the relationship of the man and the nature of the artist Juliette-Andréa Elie. And in the middle of these products, labels "I'm Not For Sale", where we discover animals and landscapes, which make customers aware that the most precious goods of our planet are not for sale.”

Our creative director, Lyzadie, is mentioned in the April-May issue of Fashion Illustrated as one of the designers to watch this year. A huge compliment.
Translation of the Italian text: “New Zealand designer and architect, Lyzadie Renault is the founder of LyZadie Design Studio. For her collections are inspired by her country and by the craftsmanship of her makers, through the use of natural materials. On the occasion of Milan Design Week, she presented The Flow Coffee table which is handmade in rescued river Rimu wood (recycled wood) and brass in the South Island of New Zealand. Under each table there is a label with the GPS coordinates to trace the origin of the wood.”
Thank you so much Fashion Illustrated for the article. We love it!

Designer Favourites: The Latest And Greatest Launches At The Milan Furniture Fair 2019 by Tim Rundle.
Great article in the latest Viva magazine about Milan Design Week 2019. Thank you for the mention Tim. Click on the image below to read more.
A new and beautiful company is joining the 1.618 Community: LyZadie Design Studio, a young New Zealand design brand that, through its magnificent products, wants to share the story of its passions: the Earth, animals, nature and New Zealand.
Working in collaboration with local craftsmen capable of high quality, using almost exclusively natural materials such as wood saved from rivers or wood recovered from destroyed old houses, combined with upcycled materials, the brand systematically thinks about the end of life of its products and ensuring that they are durable, reusable or biodegradable. LyZadieDesign Studio faces many challenges every day by systematically prioritizing its impact on the environment.
We fell in love with the beauty of their products but also with the sincerity of their approach, which is always oriented towards the solution. Here we present our favorite product: the ReLeathered Collection (see photo) composed of black leather belts collected and upcycled to create unique, lively and ultra contemporary furniture.
After only one year of existence, the brand was invited to exhibit at the Milan Design Week in April 2019.
The story of 1.618 Sustainable Luxury:
We believe that beauty, sustainability, emotion, respect and innovation are the new codes of the 21st century luxury.
Since 2009, the 1.618 Sustainable Luxury Movement gathers together an international network of brands, visionary entrepreneurs and creative minds who build tomorrow's Luxury and design a new lifestyle, responsible and sustainable.
Supported by a committee of sustainable development experts, 1.618 Paris selects and enhances disruptive brands and services that incarnate the New Luxury.
A trendsetter, a consulting firm and a creator of experiences altogether, the agency promotes pioneering companies through unique events, a digital guide & magazine and exclusive curated spaces.

15th of November 2018:
The youth suicide rate in New Zealand is the worst in the developed world. Every 63 hours a young person in New Zealand takes their own life (under 24 years old). For a population of 4.5 million in one of the most developed countries in the world this is shocking.
The Lifeline Art Auction and Cocktail Party is all about raising funds and building awareness to youth suicide in New Zealand. More than that, it is a about starting a conversation and doing our bit to help.
We have been overwhelmed by the support for this auction. We have more that $150,000 in art and auction items donated. It is very clear this is a powerful cause that New Zealanders both at home and around the world are very passionate about.
On behalf of Lifeline and the Jake Millar Foundation, I want to extend a heartfelt thank you to the artists, our sponsors and everyone who has made this auction possible. Thank you from the bottom of our heart. This is possible only due to your generosity.
Founder, Jake Millar Foundation
