H Déco tableware which evokes the wrought iron friezes inside the original Hermès flagship store in Paris at 24 Faubourg Saint-Honoré. Each individual piece reproduces with pulsating black and white drama the bold and striking iron work present throughout the store but in particular in the grills that enclose the majestic lift, the entrance doorway, the handrails and bannisters.
The designs create black and white spirals that gradually enclose the double entwined H initials at the core of each porcelain table piece. The double H monogram represents three crucial concepts: the Hermès Logo, the emblematic motifs inside the Rue de Faubourg store and also the marriage in 1900 of Emilie Hermès, grandson of the founder Thierry, and Julie Hollande, daughter of a respected specialist in exotic woods. The design has the effect of a delicious trap into which the guests let themselves slide attracted by the pulsating H heart at the centre of each porcelain piece.
This collection clearly expresses that the key to success is strategically based on the cult of quality and beauty without bending to fashion trends of the moment.
