“Sumptuous decoration – a journey through its history up to the present day” ·
Peter Kempe

From elaborate mosaics in ancient Greece and filigree ornamentation in the Byzantine Empire through to the extravagant magnificence of the Russian Tsars: Peter Kempe’s DORÉE gilded decoration represents a journey through the culture and history of magnificent decoration as interpreted through contemporary eyes, and particularly inspired by Russian drinking vessels. Here, the sublime and apparently weightless appearance of Kap-Sun Hwang’s basic AURÉOLE design is endowed with an ornamental brilliance. The effect created is of a radiant memory harking back to times long past, even though the decorative design is modern in its nature and in its elegance sits effortlessly in the 21st century.
