When we thought of an end of the year exhibition, the first thing that came to our mind was the association with the winter season.
What are the things we love to do at that time of the year and of course the festive holiday mood took over: Champagne, fine porcelain to drink your Earl Grey, trees, yes green, natural Christmas trees with some porcelain Christmas balls, great music, warm light and maybe some illustration art or photography to look at and daydream?
All these things call for a Holiday celebration and chilled Champagne by Ruinart who had been our accomplice while Mela Gruber from seven elohim and I were happy to select some precious new and traditional must have by Meissen.
Their new creative directors Otto Drögsler and Jörg Ehrlich from ODEEH launched somemodern inspired pieces and transformed in their visual language one or the other Meissen signature piece, like for example the famous three apes, which made me draw a fashion illustration of IRMA wearing a camouflage ski outfit in Méribel along the slopes.
The photographer Sammy Hart showcased some of his strong women series “Frauenbilder” which matched beautifully the spirit of the evening the atmosphere of the architectural space seven elohim and the eclectic guests.
He sees himself as a chronicler, always taking his camera along to document what he sees besides doing his assignments and productions.
To organize this Cocktail party, Mela Gruber, interior Designer and co-founder of seven elohim, photographer Sammy Hart and I had great pleasure in transforming the showroom into a space out of a winter story.
Natural paint on the walls, their own designed natural oak wood floor as well as the giant Christmas tree decorated only with fresh eucalyptus and pine cones were the perfect setting for the art, the creative crowd and the fine porcelain by Meissen.
The evening was accompanied with music by DJ and architect, Florian Dressler, co-owner of seven elohim.
We would like to thank the house of Ruinart for the generous supply of its finest Champagne.
Meissen Porcelain for the trust in letting us edit our favourite pieces and put them into our perception to inspire our creative mind.
