SINGAPORE'S ONLY BILINGUAL LUXURY LIFESTYLE MAGAZINE
新加坡唯一高端双语杂志

品味方寸间Chic Living

众所周知,创立于1837年的法国精品品牌爱马仕以马具起家,这180年来,其核心思想始终离不开精湛的工艺美学,这不仅体现在它的经典包款和服饰上,早在1920年代就已进入人们视线的爱马仕家居系列Home Universe,尤其是生活艺术和生活品位的映照。
从最初的书写文具一路发展下来,爱马仕家居系列确实一如其名,自成一个完整的“宇宙—Universe”,除了家具,还有各种家饰品如灯具、餐瓷、壁纸、披毯、织物等,每一件都是爱马仕精神的代表,每一件都能完美诠释爱马仕的品牌内涵。
2011年,爱马仕首次参加有“全球家具业奥林匹克”之称的米兰国际家具展,展出了著名设计师如Enzo Mari、Antonio Citterio等的作品,引起极大关注。
至此以后,爱马仕在米兰国际家具展的亮相,总是令人兴奋和期待,而它总是不负众望,每每出手不凡,展现出时尚精品外,家居系列设计上的活泼趣味及丰沛创意。
今年在米兰展场上,爱马仕仍旧很抢风头,全新家居系列Lien d’Hermes回归皮革本质,透过简练流畅的线条,自在演绎爱马仕与马具的渊源。马辔在这系列中,巧妙成为灵感的缪斯,配搭柳条、水晶、漆木、枫木、金属等材质,发展出许多让人意想不到的家居和家饰品。
Equipages d’Hermes系列更多的强调实际用途而不纯粹作为装饰,每件家具都在设计上融入丰富的功能性,如可依个人需求调整位置的橡木书桌、隐藏收纳空间的椅凳等,设计高雅、质感流露,为生活空间注入不少矜美元素。
Karumi系列则邀请建筑师Alvaro Siza担任设计师,在材质选择上有相当大胆的突破性,将竹子与极轻量的碳纤维材质相结合,一柔一刚,形塑出令人耳目一新的家居品。
另由意大利插画家Gianpaolo Pagni为爱马仕设计的壁纸,走构图丰富色彩缤纷路线,条纹设计穿插几何图形色块,挥洒出绚丽欢愉的节奏。

Through The Walls
这系列家居精品,是爱马仕2017/18的最新巨献,在新任创意总监——建筑师Charlotte Macaux Perelman和摄影师策展人出身的Alexis Fabry的指导下,爱马仕家居得到统一的风格控制,特点是软硬兼容,巧妙糅合,充分体现出品牌在家居设计上的美学思维。
这系列让人怦然心动的家居,将在什么时候以什么方式于本地登场,深受爱马仕迷关注。新加坡爱马仕为表慎重,特别在位于乌节路烈大厦的爱马仕旗舰店策划了一个以“Through The Walls”为名的特展,以别开生面的方式让观者走进爱马仕的神奇“宇宙”,在特定的空间里、浓郁的氛围下,感受品牌亘久的魅力。
特展是一场装置艺术的大秀,借用了scenography――舞台美学手法,使空间产生异变,让建筑里有建筑,家里有家,把爱马仕旗舰店的三层和四层,变成一个可以居住的空间。
特展的幕后主创是舞台设计师Jean-Christophe Vaillant和Herve Sauvage,他们从美国艺术家Gordon Matta-Clark的建筑作品汲取灵感,进行空间的解构和重构,彻底改造各个角落:墙被分割了;壁纸赋予结构体透视感;家具拥抱出律动的节奏;瓷器则视规矩为无物。从漆器到开司米,从纸张到柳条,每一个物件本身都有灵魂、有故事,它们在这个奇妙的空间里絮絮低语,让人惊叹于“爱马仕宇宙”的美丽和鲜活。
展览免费开放给公众,谁都可以走进这个充满诗意的空间,去感受爱马仕家居如何赋予生活丰富的内涵和灵性的质感。

You might be no stranger to its iconic bags and silk scarves. Now, step into the world of Hermes’ Home Universe.
The French maison is staging Through The Walls, a free exhibition here which will present its extensive home furniture and furnishings collections. The event is a world first and customised just for its Singapore flagship store at Liat Towers. 
Drawing inspiration from the late American artist Gordon Matta-Clark, production designers Jean-Christophe Vaillant and Herve Sauvage have taken a deconstructionist approach in their use of scenography. The top two floors of the Liat Towers store will be converted into a breathtaking showcase of Hermes’ homeware. 
Started in 1837 as a harness workshop, the heritage brand made its name as a purveyor of fine equestrian leather goods. 
It is still famed for its exquisite craftsmanship today, as proven not just by its desirable arm candy, but also its Home Universe furnishings line. 

Besides stationery and furniture, the range also offers myriad home accessories including lighting, tableware, wallpaper and rugs. The collection lives up to its name, offering a complete suite of homeware that is not just whimsical but also practical.
The French maison made its debut at the Milan Furniture Fair in 2011, wowing visitors with a furniture series by famous designers such as Enzo Mari and Antonio Citterio.
Since then, its presence at the largest trade fair of its kind has always been widely anticipated. Hermes has never disappointed its devotees either, making a point each time to showcase lifestyle products that are not just exceptional in quality, but also delightfully original. 
Its home collections for 2017/2018 unveiled at this year’s fair were no exception. The new Lien d’Hermes range pays tribute to its origins as a harness maker, presenting pared-back covetable products with equestrian leather accents. These include vases, a coat hanger, serving trolley, wine rack and writing desk, which combine Hermes’ signature brick bridle leather with materials such as crystal, lacquer, maple wood, metal and wicker. 
Another innovative range called Karumi comprises three bamboo seats with removable leather cushions designed by Portuguese architect Alvaro Siza. Marrying tradition and technology, the lightweight seating designs are shaped by a Japanese master craftsman and bolstered with carbon fibre.
The Equipages d'Hermes collection, meanwhile, stresses functionality. For example, a leather-lined stool doubles as a storage space and an oak desk can be adjusted to suit one’s preference. 
Then there is Hermes’ new wallpaper collection and furnishing fabrics, which includes prints by Italian illustrator Gianpaolo Pagni that pep up spaces with their rich hues and geometric designs.
