With Dé, the play of chiaroscuro, light, and shadow that is so characteristic of the style of Ann Demeulemeester is translated into tableware. The result is a collection of shadow paintings on porcelain. The edges of the fine plates feature a ‘dégradé’, painted by hand in several layers to create a meticulous interplay of lines. This craftsmanship makes each plate unique and enables a wide array of combinations. The arrangement of the different plates can be tailored according to the guest, the atmosphere and the dish. The play of light that occurs when the shadow effects of plates and cups touch each other is also extraordinary. Six different variations of black paintings are available: from very fine to almost completely coated. In addition to black, there is also a selection of plates with red paintings. The plates come in four sizes and are also available in solid glossy black. The cups are bowl-shaped with a horizontally placed handle. They come in two sizes and different versions, including a solid black or off-white version, without paintings.
