Built in the late fifteenth century, La Maison d’Adam (Adam’s House) is a beautiful, architecturally magnificent house located in Angers, France. One of the most visited sites in the historic city, the half-timbered structure is decorated with sculptures and is a fine representation of the Medieval Ages. Today, the house is home to artisans, in particular a unique shop named La Maison des Artisans, which carries hand-crafted items and our MOVA Globes. We spoke with Tristan Raguene of the shop to learn more about their MOVA experience and the history behind Angers.

How did you discover MOVA Globes and why did you decide to carry them in your store?
We discovered MOVA Globes at a trade show. They are very original and surprising, so we could only love them and expose them in our art gallery.
How do customers typically react upon seeing MOVA Globes and what is your favorite method of explaining the technology?
Our customers always ask us how the globes work. Do they use a battery, are they plugged in? But no, it is a king of magic. No battery, no plugs, only solar energy and gravitational force.
