Artist in Residence
The Blue Dinner
Launch of Wandler's artist in resident: Germans Ermics
For the AIR collaboration Ermičs developed a visual language inspired by Wandler’s design aesthetic and philosophy: ‘I was looking for a distinct language and forms that would permeate our differences - me as a designer and Wandler as a brand. Working with solid forms, material contrasts, elegance, femininity and intricity is something that is relevant to both our work.’ Arguably the most relevant part of the collaboration is the striking use of color - something that is central to both Ermičs’ work and Wandler's DNA.
Inspired by Ermičs’ Blue Collection, Wandler created an exclusive capsule collection of our signature designs hand spray-painted in a vivid blue gradient, which was originally imagined by Ermičs in his own glass creations.
To celebrate the launch, we hosted a blue dinner at the Unit 1 Gallery in London.
