For the occasion of Milan Design Week, maison Hermès took to exploring qualities of lightness in its newest collections for the home. A memorable installation of modular structures is the first thing of note, with a succession of four spaces each taking on a different geometric form and color. Their almost-transparent facades glow from within, with many bright units (red, emerald, blue, yellow, and green) making up their structures—to the effect of a monochrome stained-glass window or a vibrant paper lantern.
Displayed inside, viewers will find the collection featuring several types of objects and designs. Textiles take center stage in a first for the house, with the same geometric motifs and palette seen on a suite of airy cashmere pieces, like the hexagon-laden Surface bed cover and the H Tartan and H Tissage textiles—which feature the most finely-woven textural patterns and lines in hues of mustard and yellow. Pristine craftsmanship and techniques also composed pieces like the handwoven, hand-dyed blocks and squares of the H Pythagore and the Construction blanket, which utilized the couture technique of relinking, resulting in pieces recalling traditional quilts.
Simplistic and beautiful, the collection’s delicate furniture pieces include the Oria chair (which is at once timeless and contemporary with its light oak frame and cane seat) and a bamboo and bullcalf stool named Karumi, for the Japanese word meaning simplicity, lightness, and purity. And displayed effortlessly on tall stacks of raw-edged paper are pieces like the Pli’H jointed leather centerpieces (perfect for the middle of a dining or coffee table), the wicker and calfskin Oseraie Color basket, the abstracted Coulisse table lamp, a chic Kelly bag-reminiscent wall organizer called the Gazette, and a suite of Soleil d’Hermès porcelain dishes.
