Bernadaud continues collaborations

French porcelain manufacturer joins forces with the Calder Foundation and the Paris Saint-Germain football club to create stunning porcelain pieces

Renowned for its luxury high-quality porcelain tableware, French company Maison Bernadaud frequently partners with artists or companies to produce unique works of art on porcelain.

Its most recent partnerships include the Calder Foundation and the Paris Saint-Germain football club.

The Calder Foundation
In 1927 aged 29, American artist Alexander Calder moved to France to the region of the Loire chateaux. He became world famous for his mobiles and sculptures made from metal plates. Today, the Calder Foundation gathers, exhibits, maintains and reinterprets his works of art and his archives.

Six mobiles were chosen for reproduction on porcelain plates by Maison Bernardaud. The works were selected to create a cohesive and consistent ensemble illustrating the variety in the artist's creations from the 1940s and 1950s.

This collection of white porcelain plates decorated with his famous black and red mobiles invites Calder's genius into people's homes.

The Paris Saint-Germain Football Club
Bernardaud is also partnering the Paris Saint-Germain football club, current League 1 champions, and has created a themed porcelain collection.

Sharing a passion for beautiful movement and a quest for quality and precision, this partnership has resulted in the creation of 5 everyday objects: a trinket bowl, a coffee cup, a tumbler, a tray and a cigar jar.
