Marni unveils its first tableware collection in collaboration with Belgian design label Serax
Marni, the Milan-based luxury fashion house, announces the launch of its first tableware collection Midnight Flowers in collaboration with Belgian design label Serax, unveiled during Salone del Mobile in April 2023, through an experiential event emphasizing the brand’s multifaceted vision on lifestyle, an extension of Marni’s approach to interior design and home décor.
Encompassing 120-pieces of hand-illustrated porcelain plates, dishes, cups, saucers and teapots, the botanical-inspired collection interprets the Marni brand values through a new medium, highlighting an avant-garde approach that holds a constant dialogue with the world of art, with Serax as proud partners.
Envisioned by Creative Director Francesco Risso, the sophisticated yet offbeat tableware collection embodies Marni’s dynamic essence, with the intention to reawaken the tablescape with its playful energy and quirky elegance.
With a range of different-sized plates, dishes and bowls, teapots, cups and saucers in slightly asymmetrical forms, the shape of each piece materialises the importance of the hand touch and emphasises the quality of the porce- lain. Embellished with colourful hand-illustrated botanical depictions, the collection’s nature-inspired motif presents a gentle palette of mauve, teal and rose with notes of lime, reminiscent of the floral patterns ever present in Marni’s ready-to-wear collections. With each piece intended to be freely composed to welcome an alternative visual narrative, the liberal amalgamation of these delicate designs draws a parallel between discipline and creative chaos and fosters an infinite alternative affinity.
