Distinctive Designs

Hermès brings vibrant ikat motifs to porcelain

Distinctive Designs Ikat textiles, with their distinctively rich, saturated hues and blurred, softened lines, have dominated fabric design for some time. The vibrant, abstract patterns lend themselves to rugs, upholstery, drapes, and pillows. Now, legendary French textile boutique Hermès has translated ikats to porcelain with its Voyage en Ikat dinner service.

Designed by Benoit-Pierre Emery for Hermès, this delicate collection encompasses hues of emerald, sapphire, ruby, and gold. Applied singly or in combination, these colors grace plates, platters, bowls and much more. The shapes of the pieces reflect an Asian influence—when stacked, the plates resemble a lotus flower—but the collection is French in terms of function and includes a vase, soup tureen, and other classic pieces. Made in Limoges, France, the white porcelain is decorated by Hermès craftsmen.

The Voyage en Ikat dinner service was unveiled at this year’s Maison & Objet in Paris and is currently available at the Hermès boutique that opened recently at CityCenterDC. 202-789-4341; hermes.com
