le marche st. george
As Co- Founder of Le Marché St.George, Janaki was able to merge her loves of food, design and entertaining. Le Marché was born from a desire to create a unexpected experience in a unexpected place. Over the past 8 years Le Marché has become a beloved neighbourhood hub, an incubator of ideas and a launching pad for young entrepreneurs. This year, she passed on the torch to allow for more time in her studio.
With their combined passions for design, textiles and natural materials, designer Hajnalka Mandula and Janaki opened an experimental space simply named 7e7. This temporary warehouse space provided an even bigger canvas for the two to explore their diverse passions and obsessions. Hosting seasonal exhibitions, long table dinners and various events supporting arts and culture, 7e7 was the catalyst for big changes in both of their lives.
perpetual dinner parties
Janaki Larsen likes dinner parties. It seems a natural extension for a potter to also love food as both are derived from the earth. Working with both chefs and friends, she has been fortunate to set tables all over the world and continues to do so.
