L’Objet’s Tulum collection of home accessories has been hailed as its most vibrant and daring collection to date. Inspired by the raw beauty of the ancient culture found in the stories of Tulum, Mexico, with imprints of Mayan history and architecture are evidenced in new sculptural and oversized pieces.
Strikingly organic in design, L’Objet’s Tulum collection has been created using complex and ground-breaking techniques. A mixture of materials is employed including ceramic, bronze, 24 carat gold as well as, for the first time reactive glazes that capture the earthiness of Tulum’s Mineral-rich landscape.
L’Objet is the vision of Elad Yifrach, quality is his mantra and every offering is his original design. The brand offers an array of striking home accessories each one unashamedly opulent & luxurious in design, and the Tulum Collection is no exception.
Many of the designs within the Tulum collection feature a smooth or spiky finish in a nod to the abundance of cacti, synonymous with the Mayan Riviera. Hand painted spikes are also added to convex mirrors and bowls in a continuation of this motif. A touch of whimsy can also be found in the Turtle Magnifying Glass, inspired by the sea-dwelling reptiles who famously lay their eggs on Tulum’s beaches.
Paying tribute to the ‘living from the land’ way of life are the magnificent Cacti sculptures, glazed in pink with green interactions to produce an irregular finish. This nature-inspired look is present throughout the collection, contributing to L’Objet Founder Elad Yifrach’s vision of raw, unfinished beauty. A muted colour palette allows this collection to be effortlessly incorporated into any interior.
At the heart of Tulum is the Cenote Collection. Comprising of large vases and bowls, these striking pieces take inspiration from the sunken pools of the same name, found in the Mayan jungle. Their organic, natural shape mimics Tulum’s remarkable network of cave systems that link the Yucatan jungles to the Caribbean Sea.

Founder and Creative Director, Elad Yifrach explains “The history, architecture and spirituality of this coastal Mayan city has been an incredible source of inspiration for the collection. Tulum was not only a prominent trading port but also an important site of worship. These cultural touch points were a major influence during the creation of this collection; from the copper, ceramics and gold that travelled through the city, to the spectacular architecture and design of the Mayan ruins, temples and murals.”
“The Tulum collection is an expansion of what our customer is used to seeing from L’Objet. I loved the idea of fusing raw materials and indigenous ingredients with complex, modern processes to create truly unique and never-seen-before pieces. These items are irregular which is a significant part of their beauty.”
