Michael Aram is the American born artist and designer of luxury metalware, homeware and jewelry. After studying fine art in New York in the late 1980s, Michael took a life-changing trip to India where he discovered the rich traditions of metalworking. Feeling inspired, he set up a home and workshop in New Delhi to work with talented craftspeople whom he felt had untapped potential.
From New Delhi to the rest of the world, Michael Aram’s work is now sold in galleries and speciality stores worldwide and his impressive homeware collection spans exquisite tableware and accessories to luxury furniture. Bridging the gap between the artist and artisan; each piece from Michael Aram is entirely handmade, from his Signature collection to the contemporary Studio line.
His latest collection, Ocean Reef, takes inspiration from the bounty and beauty found on the ocean floor. “I was inspired by the resilient beauty and the tranquillity of the undersea world. I remember picking up shells and bits of coral as a child and imagining the quiet strength of the undersea universe from which they came.” – Michael Aram
A symbol of freedom and limitlessness, the ocean provides endless inspiration for interior design and it is one element in particular, the coral reefs, which inspired Michael Aram for this collection. Representing renewal and strength, coral reefs are associated with healing and transformation, making it the perfect motif for introducing a sense of new life into your home.
From bread baskets to platters and stainless steel bowls, the natural lines and unique shapes of coral feature heavily throughout the range and are complemented by other key oceanic elements such as seahorses and shells. Finished with natural marble, nickel plate and stainless steel embellishments, the Ocean Reef collection blends seamlessly into an existing decor with its neutral palette and understated design.
