Imagine wild tropical roots, unfurling on your plate of hummus, the veins of anthurium swirling in your Turkish coffee cup, a tropical haze on your dinner table. This Ramadan, Hermes’ new tableware collection – Passifolia – introduces a wild and iridescent grandeur to your Iftars. From the side plates to the presentation platters, the coffee cups to the dinner plates, the thirty pieces that make up the Passifolia tableware collection are the fruit of an artisanal adventure, an exploration of know-how by the house of Hermès. Passifolia, the name reminiscent of the passionflower, Passiflora Incarnata, is a collection that borrows generously from nature. And what better time than now – to take refuge in that abundant world? Designed by French artist extraordinaire, Nathalie Rolland-Huckel, who hand-painted every single design, Passifolia is a unique addition to your culinary spread this Ramadan.
Besides the nuanced and intricate craftsmanship behind the designs, Passifolia presents three shades of green-yellow in a single stem, five green-blues in one leaf, and plays subtly with the browns of the contours. This new tableware employs an exceptional range of thirty-two colours – a true paradise vert. Take a look at some of the beautifully gold-gilded pieces that are now available with Hermes:
