Orpheon, a unique concept

Always in search of greater harmony for interiors, MODELEC combines its expertise with two French brands to offer coordinated finishes for residential and hotel projects.

Spécimen Editions, a French developer with well-known designers, specialises in creating top-of-the-range light fittings and furnishings.

Miroir Brot, a famous Paris workshop, dating from 1826, the creator of the magnifying mirror, designs high quality mirrors.
