When imaginative minds meet skilled hands, the results are pure magic.
The Haas Fox Salad Monster serving bowl, $1,250, is inspired by the landscape of Joshua Tree in the California desert.
Thomas Rom, who oversees dozens of blue-chip art collections worldwide, should take credit for masterminding one of the most whimsical art-meets-functionality alliances to date. It was Rom’s idea to fuse together luxury lifestyle brand L’OBJET and celebrated artists the Haas Brothers, Simon and Nikolai Haas, which resulted in a 65-piece collection titled Wild Things. This fanciful contemplation on dinnerware celebrates both the artists’ playful POV and the brand’s commitment to high-quality utility and finish. The personality-oozing collab includes embroidered table runners, storage vesselsand full dinnerware service. Wild Things is executed in the Haas Brothers’ signature textures, and, to round out the amusing encounter, it includes a new scent, Mojave Palm, available in a sculpted porcelain votive, a unicorn candle and as Japanese incense. $28-$3,500, @lobjet
