Globes are created to order. It can take from 2 to 4 weeks (depending on the model) before they are dispatched.

The workshop

Charlotte puts her infinitely small under a bell. The territories gain their relief under a bell and thus exceed the imposed borders of cartography.

Created in 2015, the globes reinvent the snow globe and create geographies freed from the austere realism of the façade.

A lush narrative and visual greenhouse in which hybrid cities grow and personal stories exist. A postcard in volume of emotion and memory, destined to bring them back. Place de la Madeleine de Proust.
Charlotte Bourrus

Charlotte is a graphic designer, graduated from the Ecole Nationale Supérieure des Art Décoratifs de Paris. Since school, her research and creations have focused on migrations, contemporary history, geopolitics and travel. Passionate about publishing, she also draws her inspiration from books, guides and stories.

Freelance designer, then graphic designer for Volcom and Hipanema, she mainly works on collage and illustration to create commissioned visuals.

It is with collage - "a misappropriation of the know-how of others that says the same thing as poetry (Prévert)" - as the guiding thread of her approach that she approached the project The Map in 2011, which in 2020 became "L'Atelier", a creative studio to which she now devotes herself entirely, surrounded by a passionate and talented team.

She works there and conceives the most intimate projects as well as the most prestigious collaborations, always driven by the same insatiable curiosity and a singular, poetic and demanding artistic spirit.

World globes

Singapore, Rio, New York, Biarritz, Paris, Lima... each city is an interpretation, an appropriation by the artist of space and urban time.

By creating a case with subjective details, she offers to the streets, a thousand times walked or a thousand times fantasized, an original lighting.

Custom globes

As the memory is sometimes blurred, the globe is free, it is a cartography of the emotion intended to make it reappear through a city one day surveyed or dreamed.

Your Globe is thus conceived on a relationship and a dialogue with its creator.

The maps
The maps rethink traditional cartography in volume.

The world and the countries that make it up are the raw material of Charlotte's maps, a material that has been freed up and shaped by the artist.

Reinvented dioramas, the compositions question the notion of territory, borders and cultural heritage, which they narrate in a deliberately anachronistic way. The world is then documented in a utopia where the encyclopaedic and the vernacular, history and legend, reality and fantasy, the lived and the dreamed cohabit.
