Villeroy and Boch releases Abeer collection in the UAE
Following on from a Villeroy and Boch tableware design competition in the UAE, the limited edition Abeer collection by the winner has gone on sale
To celebrate Villeroy and Boch’s 265th anniversary last year, the European premium brand and a leading interiors publication in the Middle East, Emirates Home, launched a joint competition to encourage budding creatives from the Middle East region to design a limited edition tableware pattern.
Dubai-based Maher A. Housn won the competition for her unique design, which was subsequently produced by Villeroy and Boch on a Limited and Numbered Edition buffet plate and a Limited Edition coffee mug.
“Maher’s design reunites both traditional and contemporary styles,” says Nicolas Luc Villeroy, head of the tableware division at Villeroy and Boch. “With ‘Abeer’, he has honoured the venerable art of Arabian calligraphy and given it a modern touch by using fresh colours in combination with elegant gold.”
