LOBMEYR Drinking set no.279 - "Balloon

Design: Ted Muehling, 2007
In his first collaboration with Lobmeyr, the New York designer draws upon centuries of historical trends to create a distinctly modern collection. Enamel paintings and engravings of insects draw upon the realism of artists Maria Sybilla Merian and Jacob Hoefnagel, and the goldfish and eyes stem from popular motifs of the Biedermeier era.
