Cadarache - Its a research center for nuclear energy in France. Hence, the name for this ceramic cup set with wood tray is fitting for its resemblance to the shape of a nuclear power plant. The form and spirit works pretty well for me when the smoke rises from the power plant chimneys. Love the no handle concept too as the handle has become the saucer, making the cup and saucer a one piece item. Interesting. Click here for more info.
