Trio was created by the designer Christian Ghion and award-winning, star chef Pierre Gagnaire. The project is aimed at meeting the needs of its preparation in the kitchen, of serving it at the table and of its individual consumption. This attention to both the food itself and the ways in which it can be best appreciated and enjoyed is becoming increasingly widespread. Trio is a Utensil composed of three containers in stoneware, whose form is reminiscent of the shape of an egg. It can be used for cooking in the oven or in a bain-marie. The three elements are joined in such a way that they are stable and require no additional support. The Trio set also includes a side plate in stoneware, which has the dual function of keeping the food warm and being used for serving any accompanying food. Trio is suitable for serving special egg dishes in which the individual containers can be used for various ways of preparing and serving the eggs.

Born in 1958 in Montmorency, France, Christian Ghion received a Law degree in Paris in 1982. He later studied at the École du Louvre and the École Nationale Supérieure de Création Industrielle (ENSCI), graduating in 1987. That same year, along with Patrick Nadeau, he set up the Ghion-Nadeau practice. The firm's work on design objects, furniture, backs and interior design allowed Ghion to start making a name for himself as a designer: in 1990, the 'Grand Prix de la Création de la Ville de Paris' award was bestowed on him. He has lectured at the Écoles des Beaux Arts in Saint-Etienne, Reims and Rennes. He has created designs for many companies, including Nespresso, Laguiole, Salviati, Driade, Batimat, Sawaya & Moroni, Christian Dior, Salviati, Campari, Cappellini, Yves Saint Laurent and Poltrona Frau. His works are included in the permanent collections of the Guggenheim Museum in New York, the Centre Georges Pompidou and the Museum of Decorative Arts in Paris, and in many other collections across the globe.
