1/12 Christofle’s Mood Flatware Set and Decorative Case

Add a priceless piece to your silverware collection with Christofle’s limited edition design of the iconic Mood flatware set and decorative case in collaboration with the late fashion czar, Karl Lagerfeld. Inspired by Art Deco design and architecture, this special edition features structured, graphic lines on the elliptical egg shape, enhancing the contrast of geometry. With limited and numbered pieces available worldwide (1,000 in the mirror polish finish and 500 in the black lacquered finish), the iconic case opens to reveal a 24-piece set of silver-plated flatware, each stamped with the Karl Lagerfeld silhouette logo.

Available in a variety of sizes, these Livo cylindrical vases can be styled individually or together in a unique combination. Their bronze-dipped bottoms set them apart from your typical vases while the muted colour scheme subtly brings a lucent glow to an otherwise empty space.

7/12 Giorgetti's Dry Chair

Bold and innovative, Giorgetti’s Dry chair is assembled without glue using a joint technique, making all its 32 components completely separable. This vivid multicolour version, characterised by a shattering sculptural design, is a guaranteed standout.

If you’re one to discover the world and collect unusual objects of wonder, the Medici Vase, handcrafted in bonded marble by the French atelier of Caroline and Stéphane Davoy, is a great statement piece. It conjures up images inspired by Roman antiquities from the 18th and 19th centuries and is quite the item for a seasoned traveller to have in their home. Firma at Greenbelt 3, Makati
