THANK YOU FOR YOUR REQUEST
We will be in touch soon.
French luxury brand Hermès is pleased to present its latest porcelain collection. Hermés is known for translating their luxury aesthetic into homeware. And recently, they presented their latest porcelain service ‘Carnets d’équateur’ in Paris; an homage to wildlife artist and naturalist Robert Dallet.
‘This paradise leads us to the discovery of another world, that of the artist… the carnets d’equateur service is a voyage to the core of creation.’ – Hermès
Exhibited in the heart of Paris, the ground floor of Studio des Acacias was transformed into an amazonian jungle for only five hours before being dismantled. Coupled with draping vines, mist and exotic plants, the jungle was made to unveil the Carnets d’équateur collection to invited guests.
The palette of teals and golds define the collection of extensive tableware ranging from butter to presentation plates, bowls, tea sets and vases. Exotic animals mainly from Central and South America have been featured.
The meticulous detail of Dallet’s sketches in charcoal, pencil, or ink wash, coloring in gauche and rendering in paint – have been carefully positioned onto the porcelain surface – dedicated to one of these techniques and together, brings the collection to life in a chromatic concordance.
Hermès ‘Carnets d’équateur’ porcelain depict Robert Dallet’s animal kingdom. Each piece of porcelain is dedicated to his precision and work. This is a beautiful homage to the wildlife artist and naturalist and his longstanding collaboration with the french brand which began in 1985.
