Lladro

Discovered by the distinctive Spanish brand Lladro in 2005, this project paved the way in Bodo’s journey of collaborating with luxury global brands.

 
 
 
 

The Re-Cyclos collection is a contemporary revival of Lladro’s historical designs. Paying homage to Lladro’s international reputation for producing fluent porcelain sculptures, this range elegantly unites function with unique forms from the graceful physique of horses to the delicate kaleidoscope of butterflies. 

 

Highlighting the intricate skills involved in making these detailed pieces was intrinsic to this collaboration. Working with Staffordshire-based fine bone china flower modelling craftswomen, this collection aimed to uphold the importance of these centuries old techniques. Establishing a contemporary context for porcelain jewellery and enabling the Magic Forest necklaces to be a focal point, the tactile qualities of this unique material can be appreciated out of its traditional context.

Opening up Lladro to new markets whilst mindfully catering for the existing clientele was a vital component to the success of this partnership. Establishing international press coverage with Elle Decoration, Architectural Digest AD and Vogue furthered Lladro’s presence within a global market.
