Ida 5 Tray by ibride
Ida 5 tray, from the Galerie de Portraits collection of Ida Variations by ibride. A tray or a piece of art? Ida, the Muse, beautiful alone or hung with the rest of the series of 6, she makes a spectacular talking point over dinner or cocktails, or merely use her as the tray she is designed for. The same Ida in varying colours with ibride’s humorous twist of a splash of paint thrown with seeming indiscretion. Alarmingly beautiful!
French homeware brand iBride, meaning hybrid, was established in 1996 as the brainchild of designers Rachel and Benoit Convers, who together create truly unique home accessories inspired by Gothic design, Surrealism and Victorian portraiture. Throughout its collections over the years, ibride has created a distinct mythology, where the living penetrates each object, where each object conceals a great deal more than what it initially appears to be.
Since its creation, ibride has blossomed through a series of unique collections, where each and every object, the fruit of personal intuitions and convictions, embraces its own mythology. The latter is in fact a contemporary mythology, populated with images, encounters, travels, animals, and permeated with numerous references to the history of art itself. The concept of family ties, binding all their collections, is at the heart of their work, and is designed to instil a special emotional bond into the objects which surround us in our daily lives. Each new collection audaciously aims at asserting both these emotional bonds and their reputation as independent designers
All the trays are handcrafted in France, according to the traditional technique of kraft layers impregnated with resin and hot pressed. They valiantly resist intensive use, the dishwasher and high temperatures. All are equipped with a hook for wall hanging.
“Some objects exaggerate. By living with them, we find that they begin to watch us live! “
