French luxury house Christofle has issued the second installment of its limited-edition MOOD dining collection, tapping Pharrell Williams and French chef Jean Imbert — the lead behind Williams’ Miami restaurant, Swan — to partner on the elevated cutlery. Following behind the first collaboration with Karl Lagerfeld, the latest MOOD silverware continues the brand’s mission of recruiting reputable creative talent to blend the lines between art and hospitality.
The egg-shaped sets include a six-piece version with espresso spoons and a more expansive, 24-piece model with dining utensils for up to six guests. Each case features silver-plated tableware and comes packaged in a yellow, lacquered steel container, with the vivid hue meant to evoke “joy.” As for the exterior, Williams and Imbert have opted to represent “friendship” through cartoon drawings of family and friends, including Imbert’s grandmother, as well as Williams’ wife, Helen Lasichanh. Meanwhile, “share” is engraved on the handle of each flatware item in the N.E.R.D frontman’s handwriting, adding another personalized moment to the capsule.
“I love the French art of living, I love my friend Jean Imbert’s cuisine, and for me sharing is very important, in music, obviously, but also in everyday life,” said Williams.
The six-piece set is limited to 1000 pieces and priced at $800 USD, while the 24-piece set is limited to 500 pieces and retails for $2,900 USD. Both editions are available now at Christofle’s webstore.
Elsewhere for the multifaceted Williams, his upcoming pair of adidas Hu Sneakers in collaboration with HUMAN MADE were revealed this morning.
