The Meissen x Adidas Originals ZX8000 Porcelain is a historic collaboration between two German icons—Meissen and Adidas, that gave birth to a pair of shoes of which any collector would be amazed. Hand-painted and topped with actual porcelain, this pair of shoes combines historical shapes with contemporary and modern design! This piece was recently sold at Sotheby’s for $126,000.
The Heritage Sideboard by Boca do Lobo is a small journey through Portuguese history and culture. Covered in Azulejos, the Portuguese traditional hand painted born in Egypt, this furniture design tells tales of the county’s maritime discoveries and expansion.
Chinese porcelain is one of the oldest forms of art, it can draw back thousands of years. Recently Tory Burch collaborated with the New York–based artist, ceramicist Francesca DiMattio, for her fall-winter 2020 collection.
Heritage bathtub takes exceptional craftsmanship and design to a new realm. This furniture design is a true piece of art, a statement bathtub covered in traditional hand-painted tiles, one of the most representative art forms of Portuguese culture, featuring a gold-painted tear finished with high gloss varnish.
Paco Rabanne’s fall 2020 collection also highlighted porcelain, as well as a slew of historical gender-bending references. Joan of Arc chain-mail garments met fanciful floral frocks, some of which were paired with the fashion house’s Iconic 1969 bag in a floral porcelain variety.
Thornton Bregazzi embraced perfectly the personalization, and sustainability in this fashion design, just like historical art. The purpose was to reinvent something that has lived another life and put it back in the modern world.
Combining Bregazzi’s broken china with gold enamel paint, Sarge perfected the children’s samples into one-of-a-kind wearable brooches, necklaces, earrings, and more. The jeweler Vicki Sarge was coincidentally also a kintsugi admirer and friend of de Vries.
Karen Mabon’s launched ceramics collection is a love letter to the category’s diversity. Josiah Wedgwood, Pablo Picasso, Mary Fedden, and Grayson Perry are among the artists who inspired the whimsically illustrated robes, scarves, and pajamas.
Lapiaz center table can take furniture design and craftsmanship to another level.

Finding beauty in the most unexpected places, this elegant coffee table is a true masterpiece to bring a new contemporary verve into interior design.
