Ciels Bleus collection encompasses a selection of 14 adorned tableware and decorative porcelain pieces, created in collaboration with esteemed French table design brand Marie Daâge, Ciels Bleus and New York-based designer Jonathan Hansen.
Reflecting European architecture and design history’s influence on Hansen as an unfaltering source of inspiration, the Ciels Bleus collection finds its 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 étiquette.
