Parks and landscape planters
The vegetation is gaining ground in the city, it is at the same time an expectation of the inhabitants as well as the elected ones, it becomes a necessity. Based on this observation, what solutions exist? Parks, facades, roofs, public spaces … Albatros inaugurates by its concept a new field of possibilities by the vegetation of the private and public spaces.
The bird is the symbol of freedom, of peace, it is also it which sows the seeds beyond the borders and favors the biodiversity. Alexis Tricoire fervent defender of the planet had the idea of this very original and poetic planter, which speaks as much of the fauna as of the flora.
Albatros is a true planter with its irrigation system, its lighting. It is made of materials that resist corrosion: aluminum and stainless steel. It exists in suspended version and on “legs”, it can even be self-stable as in the exhibition “OFF ART and DESIGN PLANT”. Beyond its primary function it is a great spokesperson for a city or a company that wants to stand out and communicate on its values.

/ Alexis Tricoire
Alexis Tricoire graduated from ENSAD in 1994 after having attracted the attention of VIA with his pouf “Alexis’s Sister” immediately bought by the National Fund of Contemporary Art. After a master’s degree in architecture at the Art Institute of Chicago, he formed alongside Sylvain Dubuisson, Christian Ghion and Pucci de Rossi. At the same time, it is edited by Axis, Ardi, Lucien Gau, Vange, Branex.
In 1996, Alexis Tricoire created the agency Tricoire-design. He works in partnership with Epson, L’Oréal, Lancaster and creates displays for Cartier and Gilan in New York, not to mention his architectural achievements such as the Cristal d’Arc stand or the CulturesFrance reception bank.
In 2006, Alexis Tricoire signed the scenography and installations of the exhibition “Folies Végétales” by Patrick Blanc at the Espace Electra in Paris. From then on, a new turning point in his career began, thanks to which he returned to one of his first passions: the staging of nature. There followed several projects, including a club-restaurant in Brussels, an experimental platform for the Lycée horticole de Caen and an exhibition at the Jardin des Tuileries in June 2009.
All these projects are opportunities to invent new objects and installations that promote a qualitative and differentiated integration of the plant in an urban environment.
