Jardin d'Eden Seven Deadly Sins - one beautiful collection
One Beautiful Collection
To celebrate the 10th anniversary of the iconic Jardin d’Eden collection, Christofle and Marcel Wanders studio collaborate again to present a special capsule collection based on the seven deadly sins. Included in this reveal are an exceptional Haute Orfèvrerie piece and new flatware finishes. These new designs enrich the Jardin d’Eden collection, recognizable by its iconic signature motif of interlacing leaves, winding vines and a an apple suspended amongst a geometric matrix. All elements are evocative of a luxuriant garden.
Marcel Wanders studio continues the story of the Garden of Eden, while 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 the above sins, each of which is represented by an animal. Each animal was created and hand-designed by Marcel Wanders studio, and features an abundance of arabesques and sensual volutes.
