With Dé, the play of light and shadow that is so characteristic of fashion designer Ann Demeulemeester’s style, is translated into tableware. The plates, cups and bowls are hand painted with many layers, with different gradients of black and red. This craftsmanship makes each piece unique in its design.
Belgian designer Ann Demeulemeester's eponymous fashion brand is regarded as one of the world's most influential. Over the years, she has distinguished herself with a highly unique and recognizable style, inspired by her muse Patti Smith. In 2014, Ann Demeulemeester left the fashion world, moved out into the country and began studying old-fashioned techniques to sculpt porcelain and mix glazes. She is part of Antwerp Six, a group of six designers who graduated from the Antwerp Royal Academy of Fine Art in the early 1980s. In addition to Demeulemeester, Dries Van Noten, Walter Van Beirendonck, Dirk Van Saene, Dirk Bikkembergs and Marina Yee are also included in the same group.
