In re­cent years, more and more fash­ion houses have been launch­ing cap­sule fur­ni­ture col­lec­tions and de­sign ex­hi­bi­tions dur­ing Mi­lan De­sign Week, but the en­deav­our of French brand Her­mès into the home do­main is in con­tin­u­a­tion with tra­di­tion. “We have a long his­tory in fur­ni­ture dat­ing back to the 1920s,” says Hélène Dubrule, the man­ag­ing di­rec­tor of Her­mès Mai­son. The 2017/18 home col­lec­tion, called Lien d’her­mès, was launched at La Pelota in the city’s dy­namic Br­era De­sign District. The in­stal­la­tion im­parted a feel­ing of light­ness – with the scenog­ra­phy ex­tolling the virtues and warmth of the Mediter­ranean – and the pieces dis­played a clear ref­er­ence to the house’s equestrian roots. The brand con­tin­ued its fruit­ful col­lab­o­ra­tions with no­table fig­ures, in­clud­ing Pritzker Prize-win­ning ar­chi­tect Ál­varo Siza, who cre­ated the Karumi stool and bench, and de­sign duo Bar­ber & Os­gerby, who were be­hind the sculp­tural Aes cof­fee ta­ble crafted from cast bronze.
