With an enthusiastic love for Chinese pottery, Laetitia Charachon traveled to China for half a year to discover the secrets of the ancient pottery craftsmanship in 1987. After living in Belgium and The United States for many years, she settled in Shanghai in 2004. Since then, she has devoted herself to working with local craftsmen to bring modern style to her pottery creations.

In 2006 she opened the first Platane boutique in a small space on Yongfu road to promote Chinese traditional culture in a modern environment. Now Platane has two boutiques: one on Taikang road near the artistic area Tianzifang, and the other on Wukang road in the historic Normandie Apartment Building.

Platane boutiques offer designs with a distinctive simplicity and elegance that are inspired from traditional Chinese art and international modern style. You can discover Platane’s classic floral ceramic collection, Nathalie Vialars’ blue and white porcelain design for Platane, and internationally renowned designer pieces by David Trubridge, Rosaria Rattin, and Nelson Sepulveda. Platane also offers various imported brands from around the world: Le Jacquard Français, Bertozzi, Vivaraise, Petite Friture, and LSA.
