Who are we and what are we all about? L’ART DE VIVRE AUTOMOBILE.
(The automotive lifestyle.)
In 2010, two auto designers in France decided they had to find a way to channel their passion for motorsports into a medium that could impact anyone who came into contact with their art. Anthony Jannarelly and Benoit Fraylon founded Racing & Emotion to bring the history and excitement of motorsports into the lives of enthusiasts on a daily basis. With that in mind Racing & Emotion’s first and most successful product collection was born. Using mid-century modern furniture as a a canvas, Jannerelly and Fraylon created intricate designs that call back to the famous liveries of the legendary race cars of yesteryear. Retro modern form with iconic styles combined to make art. Our Art Ball and Art Egg collections are not just chairs. They are functional automotive art – created at the hands of master painters and upholstered by craftsman belonging to Les Compagnons du Devoir (The Companions of Duty), a society of craftsman who believe that work is not an end in itself but the medium in which expression is borne. All of this happens in Le Mans, the home of the legendary 24 Hours of Le Mans endurance race
