Astronomer Nicolaus Copernicus inspires more than the name of Paris-based Coperni. Designers Sébastian Meyer and Arnaud Vaillant are revolutionaries in their own right, creating pieces that are at once artful and enduring. “We want our clients to have an emotional connection to our pieces, and we won’t achieve that by making collections that fall out of fashion after a season,” says Vaillant.

Nicolaus Copernicus (19 February 1473 – 24 May 1543) was a Renaissance astronomer and the first person to formulate a comprehensive heliocentric cosmology which displaced the Earth from the center of the universe. Copernicus' epochal book, De revolutionibus orbium coelestium (On the Revolutions of the Celestial Spheres), published just before his death in 1543, is often regarded as the starting point of modern astronomy and the defining epiphany that began the scientific revolution.
