Clair de Lune is French for “light of the moon” or “moonlight.” Mystical, magical, romantic – the CLAIR DE LUNE décor splendidly continues the theme that inspired Korean ceramics master Kap-Sun Hwang’s basic AURÉOLE design: the sun and the moon. The magical appeal of the moon is transposed onto the high-quality porcelain through many remarkable designs created using the colours black and white, and 24-carat gold. The different phases of the moon are mirrored in the raised and apparently weightless design in a mystical, sophisticated manner. Thanks to its varied representations of the moon, CLAIR DE LUNE captures moments in time, over and over again, immersing every well-set table in a timeless, modern light.
AURÉOLE by Fürstenberg is inspired by the sun, the moon and the magnolia. The white AURÉOLE opens up unlimited scope for varied table decorations: plates set the scene while cups are reminiscent of magnolias, opening up towards the sun.
The universal radiation intensity of the sun and moon as an inspiration for cosmopolitan porcelain: the form AURÉOLE, which was created with Korean ceramicist Kap-Sun Hwang, is a sublime design apparently effortlessly merging ancient Asian porcelain traditions and the modern work of the European craftsman.
“Creating harmoniously designed living spaces and being at one with nature.” This Far Eastern philosophy for life is how the renowned Seoul-born ceramicist Kap-Sun Hwang describes the things that are important to him, the things that have moulded him – and which also feature in his work. He started working closely with FÜRSTENBERG as long ago as 2001.
