2,500 colorful plates have hit Bernardaud just in time for the holidays—and they’re celebrating one of Jeff Koons’ most prized works.
The Tulips limited-edition collection references his work dating back to 1995-1998, which encompasses a bouquet of balloon tulips against a reflective background. Countless shapes and colors are cascaded from a kaleidoscopic-like image, celebrating fertility, beauty, and romance. In addition, Koons is also offering five other plates featuring Balloon Dog, Elephant, PlayDoh, Lips, and SplitRocker from his original “Celebration” series. His intention for this series was to be as objective as possible so that everyone was able to see the same thing, and share a universal experience. The 12.2-inch coupe service plates are available now in Bernardaud’s autum/winter 2015 collection.
Other notable pieces this season include the Versailles collection—plates, cups, saucer dishes, and a candle—inspired by the great Palace of Versailles; Villa in both Vert Japon, an emerald green and dark blue pattern, and Garance, a ruby red and light blue pattern; and Gouttes d’or, encompassing Bernardaud’s classic bubbled dishware in gold.
