The White Table includes all the objects of a dinnerware collection in unadorned white porcelain. A variety of pieces are available where their use is dictated by a type of cuisine or dish. Certain shapes are classic, others contemporary. Some demonstrate detailed hand-engraving. Others are completely smooth. The white shapes can be combined in contrast or as a compliment to any existing Bernardaud collection.
The delicate design of this new collection combines various influences: the light effects of the rice paper Japanese screens, the art of origami folding, the braiding and caning of the furniture of the 50s, not to mention the 3D graphics offered by the new technologies. The result is an unprecedent subtle effect of a rigorously geometric pattern taken in twisted momentum. Engraved on the rim of the plates and on the outside of the various pieces of the collection, it is the light that reveals the alternation of matt and shining rendering giving a vibrant radiance that enlivens the whiteness of porcelain.
The motifs engraved on the pieces that make up this white service create a stylish catalogue detailing the various periods of French architecture from the Renaissance through to the Second Empire which characterize this palace.
The shape of Bulle expands the range of choices for the White Table. The motif recalls ripples on the surface of water and the collection offers several new pieces whose use is dictated by the elegance of fine dining.
Bright, sharp lines contrast with the soft simplicity of the shapes embellishing this service designed by Olivier Gagnère, who shows masterful use of the transparency and finesse of white porcelain to express his design in three dimensions.
