The latest from Hem sees the furniture brand move further into the home with tableware and accessories collections. Bold and imaginative, yet fully functional pieces complement what has already been created through its relationships with designers. The new range is emblematic of that and also shares Hem’s creative ethos for unique pieces for the home. Hem worked with some of its past collaborators to make the fresh range a reality, and it’s time you meet them and their creations.
Supergroup is London-based artist and ceramicist John Booth and ceramic artist Ian McIntyre. In 2019 they created their first limited edition collection for Hem, and now they’re back with the Bronto Tableware collection. Pulling from their bag of tricks and talents, these pieces are grounded in the duo’s ceramic production techniques. Solid with soft silhouettes, these dinner plates, mugs, and espresso cups are available in a radiant rainbow of colors: Green, Orange, Pink, Sand, and Yellow in high-gloss or natural clay glazes.
Following up on Guadalajara-based Fabien Cappello’s limited-edition Offcut Plates collection is something new – Molino salt and pepper grinders. Playfully oversized, Cappello looked to Mexican craft traditions and the country’s energy when designing them. Vibrant and graphic, you’ll never want to hide these works of art away in a kitchen cabinet. Each Molino grinder is made from turned solid beech wood and is individually hand-painted and finished in a high-gloss lacquer.
Jonah Takagi first designed the Peg Hook for Hem, and is back to add a brutalist architectural vibe to a new piece. The Brute Vase has lots of facets for an appearance that differs from nearly every angle and every type of light. Brute is a hand-blown design that can act as a vessel for florals or as a simple sculptural object. It’s available in a number of colors that are bright and eye-catching.
