H&D Hotlist #095: New design products, furniture and accessories
Renowned in the creative industry as the creative director of Christian Lacroix Maison, French designer Sacha Walckhoff has been branching out and exploring his signature style through various collaborations with international brands. One of his latest creations is Magic Garden, a porcelain tableware collection with German brand Rosenthal. Inspired by the apothecary gardens, which feature plants with healing properties, Magic Garden mixes classic delicate floral design with Bauhaus geometry with a surprisingly versatile result.
