When tableware doesn’t look an inch out of place in an idyllic Japanese garden setting, you know it must be something pretty special. You might already familiar with one of our favourite curated ranges, Roos Van De Velde’s Perfect Imperfection created by SERAX, from reading our previous introductory blog but what you may not know is that outside the dining room, this collection has a whole other life.
In 2018, Perfect Imperfection has been brought to life as a solo installation in the Japanese Gardens of Hasselt. Surrounded by the transitory beauty and elegance of falling blossoms during the tradition of Hanami in spring, enveloped in the entrancing sights and scents of roses in full bloom during summer and now, as we head back into autumn, entangled with the remarkable shapes and history of the ancient temple trees, Ginkgo Balboa. The organic forms of Van De Velde’s designs are her ode to nature, so clearly inspired by the natural world and at home among the entrancing gardens and the way in which she embodies each season through her thoughtful presentation is enough to leave anyone spellbound.
