Description

Continually prioritizing mastery of techniques and exceptional craftmanship, Christofle announces a special collaboration with artist Junichi Hakose, one of the most acclaimed Japanese lacquer and special craft “Makie” artists. Master Hakose has reimagined the Christofle iconic MOOD giving rise to seven exceptional designs, each in limited editions. The delicacy and attention to detail is exquisite and makes each piece truly one of a kind. The case depicts the mythical Pegasus, a flying horse with wings that spread throughout the Silk Road region from Western Asia to Greece and Rome and later to China and Japan before 1000 B.C. Rather than drawing the traditional Pegasus with wings, an ancient Japanese horse is drawn. Gold leaf particles with a diameter of 0.03 mm are sprinkled on and polished to just 0.015 mm to bring them to the surface, conveying the red light of outer space. The individual stars, depicted by shell and gold, are connected with unbroken, thin lines to bring brilliance and tension to the jet-black night sky. This is also referred to as “pitch black,” and the depth of the black unique to lacquer create a space like that of outer space, and three Pegasus are flying freely through that space. The cutlery also depicts Pegasus flying through the air, and the coffee spoons are coated with the same serene blue lacquer found on the bottom of the case with the constellations finely drawn above. Limited edition (maximum of 8 pieces). Numbered as "1 of 8". Chest in stainless steel & silver-plated flatware decorated with: Lacquer, Gold 24 carat, Silver (with palladium), Seashell (Turbo marmoratus, Abalone), Pigment component  10 months needed to create this exceptional piece
