“Choosing tableware is an expedition only taken on by those ready to settle into a look which will remain in their family for generations. Hermes hopes that you will consider their Bleus D’Ailleurs tableware collection.Blue porcelain has been with us for centuries and this collection is inspired from the past while delivering elegant looks that summarize a modern spin. “Having come from China after a long voyage, the designs are directly inspired by nature. So there is nothing rigid about the petals, the daisies, the honeycomb…” Black highlights work with the blue in delivering an absolutely beautiful collection of porcelain tableware for your home.”

“There is something about Charlene Mullens embroidery. It could be the quirky humour of her Drawings range, or the pleasingly simple shapes of her Geometric designs, or the clever way she has updated traditional embroidery and folk motifs. Whatever it is, it speaks to people.”

 Jennifer Goulding, House & Garden.

After an established career in the fashion industry, she has successfully turned her talents to designing luxury embroidered homewares. Since the launch of the studio in September 2008 at 100% Design where she made the best newcomer list, she has won international acclaim having work shown in London, Paris, Milan and New York as well as being featured in leading interior design publications worldwide. Charlene creates unique embroidered textiles mixing traditional techniques with modern design. Drawing on a wide range of inspiration she makes cushions, blankets and lampshades suitable for residential and commercial projects. The studio is committed to original design and making quality products. In addition to the collection Charlene provides a commissioning service working with private clients, interior designers and architects to create bespoke projects both in the U.K. and worldwide.

Marie Thurnauer lives in France, and graduated from Ecole Nationale de Creation Industrielle in 1989. She runs her own design company Petites Productions “People appreciating my work ask if I’m a Swedish designer, and I do feel related, I like the very simple straight forms and the functionality of Scandinavian design, it’s an obvious reference for my work.” Marie’s designs are honestly straightforward and direct with a minimalist simplicity, offering clever solutions for the everyday. But not always. Some years ago she made the blogosphere with quite a contrary design, her Noose lamp shaped as a Hangman’s knot made from optical fibers. “Lots of prototypes are presented at the design fairs, and when there is no company picking it up, people will say it’s great anyway, and suddenly call it a piece of art instead of design. So I thought, I can do that too, as a provocation of course!”

Ronan Bouroullec (born 1971) and Erwan Bouroullec (born 1976) have been working together for about ten years now. Their collaboration is a permanent dialogue nourished by their distinct personalities and a shared notion of diligence.

In 1997, they presented their “Disintegrated Kitchen” at the Salon du Meuble in Paris and were spotted by Giulio Cappellini, who gave them their first industrial design projects, notably the Lit clos (“Closed Bed”) and the Spring Chair. In 2000, Issey Miyake asked them to design a space for his new collection of A-Poc clothes in Paris. Then, the decisive meeting with chairman of Vitra Rolf Fehlbaum occurred which resulted in their conception of a new kind of office system, Joyn, in 2002. This was the beginning of a special partnership which has borne fruit in numerous projects, including Algues, the Alcove Sofa, the Worknest, the Slow Chair and the Vegetal. Since 2004, the Bouroullecs have also been working with Magis, for whom they have designed two complete furniture collections, Striped and Steelwood. Finally, they have worked on several types of textile wall systems, such as the North Tiles and the CLouds, in close collaboration with the Kvadrat brand, for whom they designed showrooms in Stockholm in 2006 and in Copenhagen in 2009.

Today, Ronan and Erwan Bouroullec design for numerous manufacturers, namely Vitra, Kvadrat, Magis, Kartell, Established and Sons, Ligne Roset, Issey Miyake and Cappellini. At the same time, they maintain an experimental activity which is essential to the development of their work at Galerie kreo, Paris, where four exhibitions of their designs have been held between 2001 and 2008. The next exhibition is scheduled for the spring 2010. They also embark on occasional architectural projects such as the Maison flottante (“Floating House”) in 2006 or the Camper stores in Paris and Copehnagen (2009) and the Casa Camper Hotel’s restaurant, Dos Palillos, in Berlin (2010).
