New York, NY, SUMMER 2020—The American artist, renowned for his unique, nature-inspired home décor and tabletop accessories, introduces his newest collection, Black Iris.
INSPIRATION BEHIND THE COLLECTION
The Black Iris Collection is inspired by the vitality and beauty of the iris flower. Named after the Greek word for rainbow, the idea of a “black rainbow” feels oxymoronic and mysterious. Michael uses contrasting oxidized and polished brass, as his way of doubting the question of whether there is such a thing as an iris which is truly black in nature.
"I am fascinated with the beauty and mystery of black irises. They are symbolic of wisdom, courage, and admiration. Given as gifts, they convey deep sentiments", said Founder and CEO Michael Aram.
MATERIALS IN COLLECTION
- Natural & Oxidized Brass
- Stainless Steel
