L'Objet 10th anniversary collections

L’Objet is celebrating their 10th anniversary this year with four new collections, Sous le Ciel, Hans, Soie Tressee, and Han Horse, inspired by the worldwide travels of founder and creative director Elad Yifrach. As a former interior designer, Elad understands that items in the home must be beautiful and functional therefore he only employs the most skilled artisans in the world to bring finely detailed tableware, table accessories and home décor to every L’Objet collection.

The newest anniversary collections use ancient design techniques to create timeless and modern pieces taking inspiration from the eastern region of the globe, specifically China’s great Han dynasty.  These distinctive collections are sure to stimulate a passion for culture while instilling the calm feng shui notoriously present in ancient Chinese history.

Sous le Ciel


The first of the anniversary collections is Sous le Ciel or “Sons of Heaven” as the emperors of the Han Dynasty were endearingly known as by the people they ruled. The first of the four great dynasties created an era of innovation, intellectual progression, and artistic expression. The Han Dynasty is cited with the invention of these age old techniques illuminated in the Sous le Ciel collection by animating ancient works of paper, ceramics, and silk weaving.

Han Collection


L'Objet Han dinnerware collection
Delving deeper into dinnerware than any previous L’Objet Collection, the Han collection features pieces honoring traditional Chinese customs including a spoons, chopsticks, and green tea cups with matching lids for the optimum temperature every time. The Han dinnerware collection lays at the heart of the Sous le Ciel and breeds, perhaps, the most painstakingly beautiful set of white porcelain with a 24K gold backdrop ever created. Its fusion of complex and groundbreaking techniques combined with those of Ancient China can only be found in these exclusive works of art.

The Han collection pay homage to a period of poetry, literature, philosophy, and art with pieces intended to generate a passion for the zen culture of the prosperous Eastern Hemisphere while retaining a modern feel. For example, the collection has spoons coated entirely in 24K gold, chopsticks in black wood and jade cabochon, and bowls which almost seem to defy gravity in reference to a popular philosophy of never being too grounded.

Soie Tressée Collection


L'Objet Soie Tressée dinnerware CollectionAs the second half of the Sous Le Ciel collection, Soie Tressée dinnerware gives the long-established customary silk Chinese braid a distinctly modern twist while elegantly complimenting the more intricate Han collection. Soie Tressée dinnerware can be used by itself or layered with other L’Objet collections as it’s pure white Limoges porcelain, platinum or 24K gold, and hand painted detailed sculpt provides the quintessential backdrop for any meal or party.




Han Horse Collection


The Han dynasty not only brought the eastern hemisphere into the greatest period of enlightenment but also trade. Along with the long list of arts and skilled crafts, silk weaving was one of the most popular trade items eventually earning the path villagers would take to the ports the name of “The Silk Road.” Through their trade along the Silk Road, the Chinese discovered a breed of horse that was far superior to any previously known breeds which they called “heavenly horses” and they quickly became the symbol for power and prestige.
L'Objet Place Card Gold Horse

Due to the honor and grace bestowed upon these magnificent creatures by the ancient Chinese, a heavenly horse motif can be spotted throughout the collection in table accents with jewels, chopstick rests, place card holders, and sculptures.

This collection offers various different pieces any horse lover will treasure but three pieces in particular are our favorites at Chelsea: the library horse sculpture, the napkin jewels horse, and the place card horse.
