THG-Paris and the Fine Art of Luxury Brand Collaboration
When in the presence of remarkably well-crafted products, a euphoric feeling immediately overtakes the senses. A powerful sensation that’s substantial yet sensual, palpable yet difficult to define: a true je ne sais quoi.
In the decorative hardware world, only one company brings this same feeling to the bath: THG-Paris. THG’s artisans tool, cast, mold and finish each of their exquisite products by hand using celebrated techniques passed down through generations. The beauty, the craftsmanship, the sophistication – the qualities of these immaculate objects seem to transcend the everyday world, possessing a unique inner glow.
Handcrafting exquisite faucets and accessories to the highest possible standards, THG turns to world class brands to help make their inspired creations; world-renowned ateliers like Lalique, DAUM, Baccarat, Christofle and Manufacture de Monaco. With rich histories rooted in masterful and meticulous craftsmanship, these recognized brands leave no detail overlooked, creating products of the highest quality and splendor for the most discerning tastes. And in turn, these brands entrust THG with their reputations because they know only THG is capable of meeting their extraordinary standards.
Oftentimes, THG’s collaborations begin with an idea from these brands. An exceptional detail, embellishment or design can inspire THG to craft it into a unique collection – and experience – for the home and bath. Highlighting these renowned partnerships, here is a snapshot of some of THG’s most beautiful luxury brand collaborations.
Pomme (the French translation for “apple”) is a beautiful, sculptural design that has been a part of Lalique’s collection for many years. With handles in the shape of alluring apples, the original Lalique design remains almost untouched, set on understated, round metal pedestals.
For more than a decade, THG has collaborated with Lalique, a brand internationally recognized for creating crystal objects d’art, jewelry and beautiful porcelain.
A bold work of artistry, Rose’s delicate DAUM crystal handles offer beautiful variations in color, with no two alike and each piece signed.
DAUM, the legendary French art crystal atelier celebrated for its mastery of the pâte-de-verre technique, uses a lost-wax method to make a mold for the sculptural elements incorporated into THG’s Rose.
Bearing the distinctive Baccarat imprint, Pétale de Cristal offers beautiful, deep colors in opulent crystal. Each translucent, lotus flower-shaped handle becomes a true bathroom jewel that could only be conceived by THG.
Beyond Crystal is the first THG series to incorporate an optional LED system. This soft accent allows the vibrant, pure Baccarat crystal to glow with the gentle ambiance of soft candlelight.
Baccarat is internationally renowned for their unparalleled quality, clarity and intense colors in crystal, and THG has translated this mastery flawlessly in numerous collaborations. Both THG and Baccarat have been awarded the prestigious EPV Quality Label, illustrating that THG’s brand and standards are in perfect symmetry with the crystal atelier.
Manufacture de Monaco
A finer example of THG’s meticulous crafting capabilities could not be better translated than with THG’s two interpretations of Manufacture de Monaco’s iconic designs. First, THG re-imagines the Alhambra pattern with Monte Carlo, which incorporates 24 karat gold, porcelain and Swarovski® crystals.
Second, the purity of Wedding is derived from Manufacture de Monaco’s Wedding collection of fine tableware to create a stunning, dazzling collection.
Created in collaboration with the esteemed porcelain house Manufacture de Monaco, both collections bear the official title of “Purveyor by the appointment of His Serene Highness the Prince of Monaco.”
Adorned with intricate lotus leaves and delicate palmettes, THG’s Malmaison translates this iconic Christofle pattern into pure artistry for the bath.
Christofle, the premier designer of French silver and decorative arts in jewelry, tableware and home accents, entrusts two of their most iconic patterns to THG.
