India Mahdavi Brings Technicolor Landscapes to Design Miami/ Basel
Limited Edition of 12
Material: Handmade glazed ceramic with pure gold interior coating in colours: yellow, chartreuse, celadon, canard blue, forest green and turquoise.
Description: The Landscapes vases are conceived in glazed ceramic with dense and vivid colours. Every element, every cell put on the ground composes the detail of an urban and graphic landscape. The scenery envisions the idea of the garden: a composition that can be self appropriated and built indoors. This effervescence of texture and colour plays with the scale of the work, the objects become a part of a whole and can be envisaged alone or in series.
Series: Dimensions: vase #1: 33 x 40 x h 45 cm vase #2: 18 x 18 x h 38 cm vase #3: 29 x 27 x h 55 cm vase #4: 85 x 54 x h 30 cm vase #5: 35 x 35 x h 47 cm vase #6: 42 x 46 x h 55 cm
India Mahdavi finds inspiration in film, not surprising for a designer who cites James Bond as a hero; and like 007, the objects and spaces she designs are sexy, chic, and a little bit mod. Now based in Paris, her eclectic practice hints at her global roots. Mahdavi designs objects and interiors that are at once stylish and playful, with organic shapes and bright colors—like her signature Bishop stool, a ceramic interpretation of the chess piece, and her lacquered-wood Flower table. "I don't like flat pieces,” she has said. “My favorites are graphic, whimsical, and colorful." Her luxe style has won her the international jetset’s approval, as well as high-profile interior design commissions including London’s Bungalow 8, Mexico City’s Condesa DF hotel, shops for Givenchy worldwide, and the Paris apartment of fashion designer Alber Elbaz.
