Christofle tran­scends amidst a gen­er­a­tion of in­stant grat­i­fi­ca­tion. Its lat­est col­lec­tion, Mood, con­verses with the present-time on multiple di­men­sions. The avant-garde piece has brought the nearly 200-year-old lux­ury house into the con­scious­ness of Mil­len­ni­als through in­ge­nious tech­nique, of course, but also the in­flu­ence of Hol­ly­wood. In 2016, the Kar­dashi­ans took to Instagram to pop­u­larise “The Golden Egg” (the more col­lo­quial way to de­scribe the ovoid shape of the ves­sel) and set so­cial me­dia abuzz.

“Be­long­ing to the time, not to be from the past, but to be right now,” chimes Va­lerie de Bray, Christofle’s Man­ag­ing Di­rec­tor for Asia Pa­cific, on the guid­ing phi­los­o­phy of this col­lec­tion. “It is still the motto to­day of the com­pany to try to be el­e­gant [yet] not main­stream,” says de Bray, “but we have the in­cred­i­ble chance to [have] had Christofle in­no­vat­ing all the time, and the boundaries are less than prob­a­bly all the other brands.”

In­deed, Mood has bro­ken code from cus­toms of flat­ware in or­der to pro­duce a sil­ver-plated egg that en­cases cut­lery for im­promptu din­ners
