“Textiles are my greatest inspiration and applying my fabric designs and new patterns to everyday items creates a joyful way to experience them in a different form.” Kit Kemp.
Introducing a colourful and beautifully crafted new collection of tableware, drinkware and giftware, designed by Kit Kemp exclusively for Spode. As with all of Kit’s work this collaboration tells a story born from a shared passion for extraordinary design and a unique sense of style.
With intriguing Tall Trees, Geo and Calypso tableware, decorative Alphabet mugs, uplifting Doodles gift collection, timeless Flow glassware and silver-plated frames the collaboration captures the essence of both Kit Kemp and Spode. With imagination and a touch of the unexpected the range brings beautiful additions to the table and home with each piece telling its own story.
Lisa Archambault, Global Design Director at Spode, comments: “Our collaboration with Kit Kemp has come from a shared passion for stunning interiors, extraordinary design and a unique sense of style, so we are really excited for this year’s launch.”
Tall Trees and Geo Collection
Based on Kit Kemp’s love of the countryside and walks in the woods on misty mornings, Tall Trees is a celebration of craft, featuring a hand painted woodland tableau translated across a full tableware collection.
The Tall Trees tableware range of dinner plates, side plates and bowls is designed to work alone or combined with the Geo pattern to create a more modern and eclectic tablescape.
The beautifully designed Kit Kemp Flow glass collection offers simple, classic shapes that are ideal for everyday use. Inspired by traditional Georgian Rummer glasses, the collection features soft, flowing lines and low stems which create silhouettes that are easy to hold and look charming on the table.
Ideal for breakfast or lunch on the terrace, a relaxed dinner or cocktails with friends, the collection includes a set of two goblets, wine glasses, tumblers, double old fashioneds, and a single carafe.
The Kit Kemp for Spode collection features two versatile cutlery designs: Scoop and Twist. Inspired by classic British styles, the collections are perfectly balanced, easy to handle and a good weight.
Scoop is a modern design with a simple ‘scoop’ embossment on the handle, while Twist is a simple asymmetrical design with subtle sculptural details. Forged in 18/10 stainless steel, the cutlery designs are the perfect companion to all of Kit’s new tableware collections.
