“Unel l’assiette à la Verticale” Could such a dish be admire as a work of art?


It was while seeing a plate accidentally left upright, Philippe Picquette had the idea of leaving the world of horizontal plates.
Result, a square and translucent container, of twelve by twelve centimeters, in which food takes quite a different face … Salads become gradations of colors skilfully composed, sandwiches have Cubist looks  and scallops appear suspended in space. Behind these impressive realizations hide months of work:






 Philippe Picquette Finalized devised five techniques of filling, which he patented in 2011. Today, he can fill ten vertical plates per minute!

Pastry cook by training, this Landernéen worked twenty years in the research and development before creating his company. The Fruits Pâtissiers of  DANONE, LA LAITIERE, the ice-cold  of LE NOTRE, QUICK, HARD ROCK CAFÉ, SEVEN ELEVENT, PICARD, DISTRIBUTION CHANNELS, JAMPI …it is him. Supported by the Brest-Iroise Technopole,


Philippe Picquette launched Unel at the end 2011.
Now he is marketing his product to introduce its original concept. «I target an upmarket clientele”, he specifies, “in particular airline business class, corporate events or even night clubs looking for amazing cocktails”.

This allows the appreciation of a vision approaching a tableau, a true work of art and for long as the artist…………Philippe Picquette


 Unel By definition: 

Unel, unique in Breton and an anagram of LUNE [moon. fr] the symbol of my city, Landerneau, or the moon is caught like a pearl within the U, distinct from the background map of Finistère which represents its origins.
