The "Eldfell" collection – named after the Icelandic volcano meaning “mountain of fire” – features refined linear and geometrical patterns in shades of black, white and grey and a combination of materials and textures.
Cast aluminium, fried citrus wood, smoke- fired ceramics, bone marquetry, ornamentations painted with cade oil, bubble glazed pottery, silvered glass and nickel silver, all evoking Iceland’s lunar landscapes, lava fields, black sand beaches, bare volcanic slopes, basalt columns, fumaroles and geysers.
With our third collection, we have furthered our collaboration with craftspeople and specific know-how. In northern Spain,“ceramica negra” is made using a thousand-year-old technique consisting of blackening the earthenware by direct contact with the flames. In Morocco, aluminium objects are still cast in sand. There, people still practice the intricate art of bone marquetry. The geometrical and spotted patterns that garnish our tableware and hand-embroidered cushions come from traditional Berber tribes. Not far from Paris, a master glassmaker mouth blows iridescent reflective glass bearing resemblance to silvered glass.
