Shades Collection in the award-winning "Illusion" design
Points of light from her award-winning "Illusion" design, which was actually conceived for porcelain, now also dance gracefully over the highest-quality shades: the collaboration between designer Stefanie Hering and the Dutch sun shade manufacturer WOOD & WASHI is the perfect combination. The décor of the "Illusion" Shades Collection, which has just been launched in four colour shades, enlivens the surface of the shades without being too conspicuous as a design.
Just recently in December 2019, ambitious amateur chefs were able to see for themselves that it is not only a perfectly equipped kitchen, but also hand-picked porcelain that plays a key role in making a meal a success: in the Munich showroom of the premium appliance manufacturer Gaggenau, Michelin-starred chef Bobby Bräuer led a pre-Christmas gourmet cooking class. The delicacies prepared in the class – Bresse quail, Périgord truffle, and wild rabbit – were served on hand-made plates and dishes from Hering Berlin, which left just as much of a lasting impression on participants as getting to use the sophisticated ovens, steam cookers, and hobs.
Hering Berlin’s presence in the Gaggenau show kitchen is just the latest tangible example of the fruitful, years-long collaboration between the luxury kitchen specialist and Hering Berlin’s chief designer Stefanie Hering. In September 2019, her manufactory put on a joint demonstration with Gaggenau at the Salone Nautico, the largest trade fair for luxury yachts in the Mediterranean. The modern, handcrafted porcelain collections formed the backdrop for the culinary creations served at show cooking sessions and a dinner by Michelin-starred chef Luigi Taglienti.
The new Gaggenau cookbook published by the renowned Tre Torri cookbook publisher at the beginning of October 2019 also impressively documents the synergy in this collaboration: both brands stand for meticulous production processes, internationally celebrated design, and a highly sophisticated combination of expertise and enjoyment.
The two brands have a lot in common: not only do they both enjoy an international reputation, they are also appreciated by culinary connoisseurs and design aficionados alike. That’s why the collaboration will be expanded in 2020: an event during the Salone del Mobile in Milan is in the pipeline, among other things. The plan is to make the shared core themes – the manufactory concept and authentic, handcrafted luxury – tangible for visitors at the on-site Gaggenau showroom. This guest performance in Milan will culminate in an art dinner for guests from the world of art and design. If you
If you don’t have the time to travel to the furniture fair, there are two more dates to look forward to in the Gaggenau showroom: on 29 March and 29 June, Bobby Bräuer will be revealing a few more secrets of his sensual cuisine – and Hering Berlin porcelain will be an indispensable part of it.
