Bodo designed several collections during his collaboration with luxury Spanish porcelain brand Lladró.
Bodo’s aim with his collection was to introduce functionality to a company that made purely ornamental pieces. Retaining the decorative quality and highlighting the intricate skill involved in making poetically detailed pieces, Bodo created a collection that significantly broadened Lladró’s product range.
The partnership also encompassed Bodo’s art direction for the marketing of the collections, including creating catalogues and directing the launch at Maison et Objet Paris in 2006. The project incited the interest of a new audience without ostracising Lladró’s existing clientele.
Within a year and a half the editorial coverage was equivalent to $15 million. Bodos successful rejuvenation of this historical brand resulted in significant international press coverage from Elle Decoration, Architectural Digest and Vogue, resulting in Tokyo's Takashimaya and Henri Bendel in New York stocking our Lladró collections and furthering the brand’s presence within the global market.
The result of a collaboration with the iconic Spainish Porcelain brand Lladró. The concept is based on the of recycling parts from other pieces that take on a new and surprising meaning when given another purpose. A fun and innovative concept for lovers of contemporary design.
The Equus collection
Bodo’s collection for Lladró introduced functionality to their product range, which was previously purely ornamental. Exploring the company’s eminent history, these designs pay homage to the quality of Lladró’s porcelain through the use of natural and animal forms in relief and colour.
