Cartier's new homeware collection

The new homeware collection by Cartier cultivates a discerning art de vivre, presenting candles and candle holders, boxes, photo frames, trays and bowls which are precious and refined, stylish yet functional. These objects exude the signature Cartier style in sublime detail showcasing precious materials and utilising craftsmanship that draws on a broad tradition of techniques. True to the graphic inspiration characteristic to Cartier, the collection is defined by geometric motifs and the monogram. These motifs, in engraved metal or openwork detail, pay tribute to the art deco tradition in a fresh interpretation of the repertoire. The objects are reflections of Cartier excellence, their craftsmanship evident in the finely wrought sophistication of the engraved metal and openwork detail. Further ornamentation is supplied by the dainty application of enamel on bisque porcelain, and the cabochon cut of decorative red jasper, onyx and lepidolite.

The biggest knell to Molecular Gastronomy has come from the pioneer himself, Heston Blumenthal. In March 2017, in a feature interview with The Guardian’s Observer, even Blumenthal stated that things are changing. He talks about a move to sensory design, and the introduction of theatre into his restaurants. By his nature, Blumenthal pushes the boat right out by now including tableside magicians in his offering.
