In 1953, three brothers Juan, José and Vicente Lladró embarked on an adventure into the world of porcelain. As they learned the language of this beautiful material, they created Lladró. Synonymous with creativity, style, and hand-crafted quality, they have grown their eponymous venture into a global name in the ceramics space.
With each new creation, they sought to challenge the laws of gravity and reinvent themselves. Their collection of ceramic sculptures, lighting and jewellery explores multiple themes: from poetic sculptures of ancient deities to contemporary structures that break with tradition. From their workshop in Valencia, talented craftsmen carve these treasures into being with meticulous detail. Lladró has always championed slow design, a process that values the enduring over the obsolete. This core value extends to sustainably sourcing raw materials whilst reducing their carbon footprint.
For founder Staffan Tollgård, the brand’s strongly held values, unparalleled quality and innovative collaborations made it a perfect fit for the Tollgard Showroom. Nightbloom, imagined by renowned designer Marcel Wanders, immediately caught his attention. Delicate petals of porcelain surround a subtle glow in this new design. With its expressive form, it creates a beautiful yet functional centrepiece for any room. Co-founder Monique Tollgård fell in love with the Embraced collection’s contemporary characters designed in collaboration with designer and artist Jaime Hayon. Playful and personable figures, The Guests radiate character, colour, and charm.
Arriving at the Tollgard Chelsea showroom in November, Lladró will be launched at the Design Centre Chelsea Harbour’s Lighting by Design show.
