H&D Hotlist #100: New design products, furniture and accessories
Eden on a Plate
Botanical exuberance meets French haute couture in Passifolia, a new tableware collection from Hermes.
Drawn by artist Nathalie Rolland-Huckel, Passifolia features a glorious riot of plants from all over the world. Nowhere else can one see chestnut and banana leaves intermingle or fern and hibiscus cohabit.
Plates, platters and cups unfurl on the table and form landscapes conducive to contemplation.
Hermes Passifolia collection retails from $145 at Hermes.
Mix & Match
Decorative tiles can easily and effectively personalise your space. The Mattonelle Margherita range by designer Nathalie du Pasquier for Mutina comprises no less than 41 different patterns in two sizes.
They can be mixed and matched to create anything from feature walls and accent surfaces to bespoke furniture.
Mutina Mattonelle Margherita collection is available from Rice Fields, price by request.
