Located in the south of France, in the Aveyron region, the Plum bum publishing house was born from the meeting of three lovers of design and decoration. At Plumbum we focus on handicrafts, we produce pieces with a high poetic density and noble materials. The design of original pieces, from furniture to objects is a collaboration of different designers, in the same workshop we exchange ideas, strategies and knowledge.
The collaboration between Laurent Jouany and Léandre Carbonneaux began in Laguiole, both evolving in the world of porcelain, and Fanny Carbonneaux, at the same time developing furniture design.
It only took meeting young designers in 2017 and a desire to support local knowledge for the Plumbum furniture publisher to emerge.
