Hermès celebrates the wild beauty and richness of nature with its sweeping new tableware collection, Passifolia.
Featuring an encyclopedia’s worth of exotic plant species, every element of these tableware pieces is a unique work of art—from a bowl with a single palm frond to a platter teeming with orchids.
Benoît-Pierre Emery, creative director of Hermès Objets et La Table, tapped artist Nathalie Rolland-Huckel, who is renowned for her skill with porcelain, to collaborate with him in a quest to “rediscover the richness of the floral world, plants and leaves, intimately intertwined.”
So lifelike are the resulting patterns’ re-creations of organic intricacies, you just might decide to forego the real floral centrepieces altogether.
