Seven deadly sins - one beautiful collection
To celebrate the 10th anniversary of the iconic Jardin d’Eden collection, Christofle and Marcel Wanders studio are once again collaborating to present a special capsule collection based on the seven deadly sins, along with an exceptional Haute Orfèvrerie piece and new finishes. These new designs enrich the Jardin d’Eden collection, recognizable by its iconic signature motif: interlaced leaves, winding fleur-de-lis and a decorative apple against a geometric matrix, all evocative of a luxuriant garden.
Marcel Wanders studio is continuing the story of the Garden of Eden and once more reinterpreting the theme of temptation and the seven deadly sins with a collection of silver-plated accessories showcasing the luxuriant garden. Inspiration was drawn from Dante’s work, “The Divine Comedy.” Lost in the wild forest of sin, the poet goes on an imaginary journey to Hell, Purgatory and Paradise. With a particular interest in the story of Purgatory, defined by Dante as the most human place between heaven and hell. This in-between place is where souls who are sorry for their sins can redeem themselves.
These sins are characterized as the seven deadly sins:
Pride, Envy, Anger, Sloth, Greed, Gluttony and Lust.
The seven silver-plated pieces presented today illustrate these seven deadly sins, each of which is also symbolized by an animal. Each animal is invited to enter the fantastical decoration of the luxuriant garden, created and hand-designed by Marcel Wanders studio, featuring a wealth of arabesques and sensual volutes.
