The Jonathan Hansen x Marie Daâge collections encompass a selection adorned tableware and decorative porcelain pieces, created in collaboration with esteemed French table design brand Marie Daâge, and New York-based designer Jonathan Hansen.
Reflecting European architecture and design history’s influence on Hansen as an unfaltering source of inspiration, the collections find their roots in the hand-painted ornamented ceilings characteristic of Renaissance and Baroque edifices.
Crafted by hand in Limoges, France, by the region’s esteemed craftsmen, the porcelain used for the collection materializes the represented lightness and sense of fragility. Bestowing a modern interpretation to this historical theme, Marie Daâge renders Hansen’s design onto the porcelain through hand-painted brushwork, yielding an atmospheric airiness and fluidity characteristic to her work.
The resulting collection, comprised of a dinnerware set and decorative pieces, imparts both a traditional style and contemporary etiquette.
The first release in the series is Ciels Bleus, which captures the ethereal spirit of dreamy blue sky cloudscapes in Daâge’s signature colours with imaginative artistry.
The newest release is Ciel Nocturne, another sophisticated take on our experience with the skies above us — inspired by the changeful and fluid skies above cityscapes as the day turns to night.
