Hermès Transforms Common Materials Into Refined Pieces for Its Latest Home Collection
July 11, 2019
For the 2019/2020 home collection of Hermès, the French luxury brand turned to common materials for inspiration. Hermès wanted to emphasize how each material around us is never in a fixed state. People have the capacity to transform them into different forms. This innovation-centered attitude produced an array of fixtures like vases, baskets, and furnishing fabrics perfect for adding elegance to your home. From bronze and granite to porcelain and leather, these home products take on new and unique forms.
The breeding ground for innovation
Their newest roster of interior decor items represents the balance of beauty and function. Hermès Maison Deputy Art Director Charlotte Macaux Perelman shares their inspiration. “We wanted to work the material ‘raw’; highlighting ‘uncovered’ leather [and] the texture of wood and stone,” she says. This year’s collection is a breeding ground for imagination and talent to flourish. Different designers and artisans collaborated to create products focusing on the materials’ lines, patterns, and textures.
In the exhibit at La Pelota, Italy, the vibrant pieces contrast well against a stoic stonework maze. The somber, earthy background highlights the beauty of the products. The exhibit encourages appreciation of the materials’ origins and how they were transformed into refined pieces for home or office.
