La Fourchette des Ducs

… The history 

From Clos Ste Odile to La Fourchette des Ducs

It was on the initiative of Ettore Bugatti that La Fourchette des Ducs was born. Looking for a site to welcome his clients, he encouraged his friends Lucien Weissenburger, Charles Spindler and René Lalique to combine their efforts and talents to create a new building, the Clos Sainte Odile.

Ettore Bugatti chose to establish his factory in Molsheim in 1906, at the heart of the Bas-Rhin region. This automotive pioneer is inseparable from the worlds of art, culture and a certain way of living. Also, to welcome his clients in the nicest possible way, he asked his friends Lucien Weissenburger, Charles Spindler and René Lalique to design an exceptional location. From there the Clos Sainte Odile was born, which would become La Fourchette des Ducs.

Lucien Weissenburger was the owner of the Piémont des Vosges wine estate. He was responsible for creating the building named the Clos Sainte Odile, linked with the name of the field nearby.

The work of Charles Spindler is considered by many to be the source of Alsatian identity. The man was a writer, an artist, a painter, a photographer and above all, a marquetry expert. His Rhineland art nouveau style is reflected in the building's frontage with sculpted framework around the theme of wine, and inside exceptional woodwork which you can rediscover on each visit.

An artisan and artist, a manufacturer and creator, René Lalique has marked the world of decoration. His works are found in the carriages of the Orient Express or the rooms of the 1st class of the Normandy liner for example. Here, he designed tailored lamps and objects which are not found anywhere else. The Winter room has even more examples which are not to be missed.
