studioooij Les Nabis Mug

We were invited by the Jewish Museum in New York to create a series of products for their Giftshop, alongside the exhibition 'Edouard Vuillard: A Painter and His Muses, 1890-1940', that ran from May 04 - Sept 23, 2012.

 

The inspiration for these mugs originated from the fact that Vuillard and the Nabi group of painters he was part of were called out for their 'earnesty and their beards'. The beards also bridge the time between then and now, where we see more and more beards in the streets again today.

 

Other paintings by Vuillard prompted the creation of pillows and scarves.
