Tane: Silver Collection

Tane: Silver Collection

From 2014 to 2016 Bodo acted as Creative and Strategic Consultant for Tane, a Mexican silverware brand with a reputation for extraordinary craftsmanship.

Fascinated with regenerating the use of traditional materials and skills within a contemporary context, Bodo designed a range of pieces that express the rare and fine qualities of silver.

Despite the brand's prestige, until 2014 Tane had not exhibited in Europe in decades and needed an injection of modernity to bring it firmly into the 21st century. Bodo implemented a new creative direction, honouring the company’s history whilst strengthening their presence in the contemporary marketplace.

Whilst recognising the exceptional skill of the Tane silversmiths, who train for five years or more, Bodo designed objects that introduced new material combinations. The use of recinto stone and walnut hardwood contrasts the reflectivity of the silver and innovatively expands Tane’s product range for a contemporary audience.

longevity

Silver is the most reflective metal and is incredibly versatile, historically desired as a symbol of wealth and valued for its antibacterial properties. The aim of this collection was to reinstate the longevity and authenticity of silver within the heart of the modern home, for future generations to cherish.
