Design – At Maison & Objet fair in Paris, Ginger & Jagger expanded its Earth to Earth collection. The new furniture designs build up an evocative poetic realm, where Nature’s sculptural shapes are made eternal through handcraft, with unique artisanal techniques and the outstanding blend of superb materials, such as brass, wood and marble.

The standout design is the Gravity Console, standing in a delicate equilibrium between function and sculpture. Pulled by the invisible force that connects space and matter, holding the universe together, the Gravity is crafted in marble or in lacquer with a unique ripple effect carved directly in the stone.
The Air Side Tables pay tribute to the invisible foundations of life on Earth. Standing on rosebush branches in molded-in brass casting, the acrylic top seemingly floats as if suspended in the air. Their weightless feel makes them purposefully atmospheric for living spaces in need of lightness. The series comes also in a broad selection of marble or lacquer tops.
Ascending through the mantle of the Earth, molten magma becomes colder, and forms rocks that are testaments to its living core. The new Magma Table Lamp provides a poetical meditation on these elements, with its carefully layered composition. The geometrical foundation, in stone, serves as a base for a volcanic rock molded in brass casting. The light is framed by a stylized fabric lampshade.
The stone sections of the Saturn Table Lamp are layered upon each other, yielding a foundation for a beacon of light used by a stylized lampshade. The Saturn is a study on the structural and the material, transformed into a truly functional form. The series is available in small, medium and large sizes.
