THG has been living a beautiful history with the Eastern world for several years. Arabian Sheikhs have placed orders for villas or yachts. In the meantime, THG opened a showroom in Dubai. THG also designed the fittings for Burj El Arab, the palace in the shape of a sail on the sea. Creating a collection that makes the link between French craftsmanship and Arab aesthetics even more directly obvious.
The NIHAL collection required eighteen months of research and development and no less than eleven manufacturing steps. It embodies this common love of both cultures for colours, finishes and beautiful materials. Signed by the French architect and Middle East specialist, Xavier Cartron, the NIHAL collection is named after a star in the constellation: “The star of water thirst”. It will be officialized next March at the ISH in Frankfurt. For NIHAL, THG, holder of the prestigious “Entreprise du patrimoine vivant” label, has also collaborated with another company so viscerally committed to exceptional know-how, the Haviland House. Made of Limoges porcelain from Haviland, the drawings are inspired by Arab-Muslim motifs. However, the crosspieces replace the traditional oriental ornamentation scrolls, thus reinforcing the contemporary effect of the collection.
The metal beak takes the shape of the crescent moon, one of the strong symbols of the Eastern world. Very decorative, graceful and delicate, NIHAL is available in 5 colourful versions — green, blue, ivory, black — and a metal version.
