Coming Soon - Anissa Kermiche9th March 2021
We are thrilled to introduce an exciting new brand to the Tobias Oliver Interiors showroom - the innovative and striking designs from the enigmatic Anissa Kermiche.
Chances are that you may have spotted Anissa Kermiche’s uber-cool and striking designs on your Instagram feed if you follow any fashion or design influencers. Kermiche is behind the striking vases, pots and jugs that celebrate the female form – and have completely won over some of the most stylish women in the world.
Anissa Kermiche’s designs have caught the eye of many top tier publications including Vogue, Elle, Forbes, Harper's Bazaar, The New York Times, Sunday Times Style to name a few. Her designs have a somewhat cult following, led by Leandra Medine of Man Repeller, renowned style writer Pandora Sykes, influencer Camille Charriere, as well as a growing number of celebrities such as Gwyneth Paltrow, Lily James, Gigi Hadid and Elizabeth Moss amongst others.
A gifted academic at a young age, Anissa Kermiche studied engineering and computer science, but after three years was struck with a weariness that led her ever-present rebellious temperament to adopt a different approach. She threw herself headfirst into jewellery studies at Central Saint Martins and London’s infamous jewellery district, Hatton Garden. Her bold move paid off and in 2016 culminated in an impressive jewellery launch.
Today, Anissa Kermiche’s collection of objects have expanded further into the interior sphere, showcasing the female form in all its grace into the home. Anissa designed the infamous “Love Handles” after not finding anything similar in the interiors market. Following overwhelming success, went on to design “Jugs Jug”, a humorous playful representation of the female bust.
The transition from jewellery to homeware, or from fashion to sculpture was very natural, as the worlds are so closely aligned, she explains. "Fashion could not exist without art,” Anissa Kermiche says, “it’s where every designer turns to for inspiration. Both designer and artist have the same rudimentary vision to present an idea and evoke a response from the viewer. The sculptural nature of garments, the colours, the prints, the embellishments – they are an art form in themselves."
In an Interview with Harper’s Bazaar, Anissa Kermiche describes her rationale for the great success of her homewares, "I like to think it’s because we’re pushing the boundaries. We are creating something fun and tongue in cheek, but still maintaining a high level of taste with our colour and texture choices." She’s certainly won us over.
Items are available for pre-order on our website now, and new stock is expected to arrive in June.
