The World of Hermes in our Plate

Amazon, macaw, cock-of-the-rock, jaguar, Bengal tiger, leopard, toucan, puma, spider monkey: Robert Dallet’s bestiary seems endless. It all began in 1984. At the time, Jean-Louis Dumas was president of Hermès and got to know the artist at an exhibition. This was a meeting of the minds for these two enthusiasts, which swiftly led to a fruitful partnership, starting with two silk scarves, ‘Kenya’ and ‘Equateur’, and culminating in a long series of projects inspired by Robert Dallet’s passion for the animal kingdom. The hyperrealism is both stunning and sublime. Following this 25-year collaboration, Hermès continues to astound us and has recently unveiled a porcelain dinner service named ‘Carnet d’équateur’ which invites us on a journey. Coordinated by Benoit-Pierre Emery at Hermès, this dinner service aims to tell a story based around Robert Dallet’s illustrations, from his charcoal sketches to his paintings. Some pieces have a white background, while others are glazed in celadon green, the iconic shade that epitomises the history of porcelain. A true voyage of discovery.

La Nature est si belle qu'il est inutile d'y ajouter quelque chose. Robert Dallet
