'Petit H' by Hermès
Big news for London art lovers
An extraordinary collection of artistic sculptures have been crafted within a boutique laboratory called 'Petite h', by Hermès in London.
The esteemed French fashion house breathes new life into the materials such as ordinary household objects one could call "defective".
A creative laboratory that goes by the name of 'Petite h' (the British version of the famous Parisian L'atelier petit h) will open its doors in December this year.
The basic concept of the project has grown from the idea that all waste is useful, such as leather trims not suitable for handbags, silk scarves with slight tissue defects and even an ordinary old table - take on new and interesting shapes and purpose in the studio...
"With the help of magical hands and wonderful imagination of our artists, we want to give new life to things thrown open and not so obvious properties of materials," says Hermès creative project manager Pascal Massard.
With a totally unique and sometimes surprising edit of designs, its French counterpart has long been admired by fashion and art enthusiast from around the world. Whether it be a bench in the form of a crocodile, glass vessels in unusual frames or a fabric necklace made from scarves – these are just a few examples of the exhibits in Paris, and a taste of what Londoners can soon expect.
