One workshop embroidering for Chanel develops  into the world of architecture. Montex Atelier, founded in 1939, creates MTX Broderie Architecturale, a new line of business and research leading knowledge of haute couture to the world of interior design and architecture. Founded in 1939, Atelier Montex has established itself as one of the most innovative partners of Haute Couture. While traditional Embroidery savoir-faire continues to be exercised at the atelier, the company never ceasers to experiment and invent, bringing the techniques and materials of this precious trade toward new possibilities and untried forms of expression. The atelier’s Artistic Director, Annie Trussart, instils this passion for research and artistic curiosity in her staff and collaborators.

The end result screens, translucent walls or hanging sculptures that divide rooms, separate existential spaces and fill gaps.

Embroidery is reinvented in a dialogue with Architecture. The change of scale results in implementation of new technical solutions, each one taking embroidery savoir-faire in bolder, more unexpected directions. Some examples of jobs created with this technique we saw in the Brera Design District, Milan, in the exhibition “La Broderie fait le mur” last April.
