Hermès – COLLECTIONS FOR THE HOME

THE TOPOGRAPHY OF MATERIAL

Hermès’ collections for the home
invite you to step out of time – while keeping your feet on the ground –
and to create a dialogue between roots and movement, between materials
and know-how.

For Milan Design Week 2024, Hermès is presenting its new collections in tandem with pieces from its heritage. This pairing plays on temporal ambiguity, demonstrating that Hermès objects are unaffected by time and passing trends.

Following a route on the theme of the ground, evoking our relationship with the world around us, the eye
is drawn to a composition of raw materials – brick, stone, slate, wood and compacted earth – depicting
a jockey’s silk jersey.
A powerful symbol of the house’s cultural heritage, the jockey silk with colourful geometric motifs is an inspiration for leather goods
and textiles. Buckets, baskets and table centrepieces in leather are given form by highly skilled saddler- leatherworkers.

Virtuoso craftsmanship is also apparent on blankets in subtle, graduated shades and on large cashmere bedspreads in new sizes, enhanced with graphic lines which are woven, dyed, tailored or quilted and embroidered.

The shape of the new Diapason d’Hermès lounge chair in leather
and hammered aluminium is radical and elegant. Ethereal lamps inspired by the codes of equestrian vaulting and the delicate strokes of the Tressages équestres dinner service are the embodiment of lightness and refinement.

All of which confirms Hermès’ original spirit of combining excellence
with craftsmanship.

LOUNGE CHAIR

Created in the modernist tradition
by Studio Hermès, this lounge chair combines contrasting materials with the power of formal design. Its structured look is composed of two pieces of leather forming the seat and back which are mounted on a hammered aluminium frame.

LAMP

Lunge reins, riding crop and show-jumping poles… This new line
of lamps has a distinctly equestrian identity with a slender stem in braided two-tone leather, a shade in slub linen with leather piping and a patinated base with a bronze-style finish. Understated and unique, it plays with textures, materials and colours.

BASKET

For the first time, saddlery and leatherworking know-how has been utilised to create a line of objects. Blanket baskets, buckets and table centrepieces are crafted entirely from leather. The material is used here

to explore construction, scale, colour and geometry. Strips of coloured leather on both sides, pierced and stitched by hand, are coiled to form a basket, while table centrepieces

in leather marquetry display graphic motifs. All the skill of the house’s artisans is deployed to transform supple leather into solid objects.

DINNER SERVICE

Symbolising the bond between
horse and rider, the twenty-seven pieces of this new dinner service depict the passementerie and braiding on harnesses. The kaolin white of the porcelain highlights Virginie Jamin’s airy, textured designs, with natural leather bows and

cotton ties, accented with dashes of mint green, lemon yellow
or petrol blue.

BEDSPREAD

Graphic, geometric, hypnotic.
A Studio Hermès creation based
on a design by Jochen Gerner,
this appliqué bedspread reveals
a succession of small colourful flags in motifs drawn from jockeys’ silks, conveying the diversity
of equestrian motifs in existence. Crafted in silk and cotton twill with tone-on-tone topstitching and a cashmere reverse, this piece of an unexpected size also flies the flag for a singular textile know-how.

BED BLANKET

This tartan-style bed blanket is crafted from cloud-like, fold-dyed cashmere. The haute couture technique of fold dip-dyeing has been used to create shades of bronze

and sunny yellow. Vertical and horizontal bands with a hand-painted look form a giant chequerboard pattern, complete with the resist-dyed H signature.

THROW

The last of the sun’s rays, daybreak, elements of nature, chiaroscuro… This cashmere blanket worked
in a palette of graduated shades
is endlessly comforting. It is hand-spun, hand-woven and hand-dyed in Nepal. The binding is
a colourful tie woven in contrasting shades. Each fringe is dyed to halfway along its length, bringing light

to the naturally white cashmere.
