Jarosinski & Vaugoin: Onda

In collaboration with Jarosinski & Vaugoin, Bodo Sperlein launched Onda at Maison & Objèt Paris in September 2019. 

Designed by Bodo Sperlein for traditional Viennese silver workshop Jarosinski & Vaugoin, the new “Onda” collection reinstates silver as a contemporary material for the dining table of a new generation, exemplifying that silver was never off the table. 

Fascinated with regenerating the use of traditional materials and skills within a modern context, Bodo Sperlein has designed a range of pieces that express the extraordinary qualities of silver as an elegant and timeless material, redefining the centrepiece within 21st century table culture. 

Inspired by motion, the "Onda" fluid glass stand, hand-crafted by the Viennese glass manufacturer Lobmeyr, has intricate interchangeable silver pieces that can be arranged in a variety of combinations aiming to create a flexible dining experience.

The name "Onda" is derived from the Latin 'Unda', which means 'wave'. It captures the fluidity and timeless appeal that "Onda" brings to the table.

The collection consists of four 925 sterling silver pieces: a lidded globe, an oval tray, a vase and a fluted bowl. As well as being available as a collection, the pieces can be purchased individually. Pairing the silver elements with feet made from local walnut enhances the versatile design.
