In collaboration with brush specialists Andrée Jardin, Frenchman Amaury Poudray designed the PUKKA, a brush for cleaning off desks. The horsehair brush has a two-part handle of stainless steel and oak, sapelli, or sycamore. These materials give the accessory the weight, durability, and minimalist look expected of traditionalist designs. Soon to be on display in Paris, the PUKKA will show first at Maison&Objet January 24-28 and then at the Galeries Lafayette Maison from January 31 until February 16.
