When it comes to luxury design, few brands epitomize the elegance of Christofle. As the premier designer of French silver and decorative arts in jewelry, tableware and home accents, Christofle has been an industry leader since its inception in the mid-19th century. THG Paris is proud to collaborate with this prestigious brand for two new exciting collections: Collection O by Studio Putman and Collection Malmaison. Using two of Christofle’s most iconic patterns and designs, THG has established these distinct collections that offer modern and traditional fittings and accessories for the bath.
Using Christofle’s Vertigo Collection as inspiration, THG’s Collection O by Studio Putman possesses a beautifully formed style that transcends modernism with a minimalist flair.
As the stylistic centerpiece of the collection, the famous ring designed by the Late Andrée Putman for Christofle in 2002 embodies modern luxury in brilliant silver. Mimicking a wavelike appearance, the ring is neither round, nor oblong, but possesses a rounded effect that changes shape depending on perspective.
Since Vertigo’s creation, it has been used with continued success in tableware, home and jewelry collections and now the intimate bathroom environment. The ring embellishes faucets, basins, bathtubs and various fixtures in a variety of finishes, including polished chrome, matte nickel, polished nickel, silver rhodium and gold. Collection O brings sharp artistic flair to the bath with sensual curves and timeless beauty.
THG’s Collection Malmaison borrows from the historical, exceptional pattern Christofle created in 1967, which has graced Christofle’s magnificent collection of jewelry, tableware and home accents for many years. Drawing inspiration from the Chateau de Malmaison near Paris, the Malmaison pattern is more traditional and ornate – easily identifiable with intricate lotus leaves and delicate palmettes.
In addition to using Malmaison’s meticulous accent patterns, aspects of the faucets, handles and accessories are handcrafted with a delicate reed-like appearance. The wall-mounted sink fixture, which appears to be floating, is a collection highlight and THG’s first attempt at such an elaborate and unique wall-mount design.
A multitude of handle options are available in a combination of crystal, Bianco carrara marble, portoro marble and brass together with stunning trim accents in a variety of finishes including the new patina nickel. Available in metal, crystal or portoro marble, the Malmaison collection of bath fittings and accessories offers regal beauty and distinction for the bath.
In partnership with Christofle, THG brings fully realized detail and renowned master craftsmanship to Collection O and Collection Malmaison – two new series that epitomize bathroom luxury and splendor.
