Modern design for more mindful living – Monum: striking and sculptural

Press release   •   Feb 07, 2020 10:50 GMT

To counterbalance increasingly hectic, impersonal lifestyles and multiple demands on their time, many people are exploring more holistic approaches. Yoga, meditation and Qi Gong are more popular than ever. Another strong trend is mindfulness – focusing on little everyday rituals, such as a healthy bowl or a cup of tea or coffee, to switch off busy minds and find peace and relaxation.

Villeroy & Boch's new Monum collection is designed to accompany these precious moments of indulgence. Monum invites us to pause and direct our thoughts to the here and now. With its striking clear shapes, harmonious on-trend colours and different surface finishes, the collection adds an individual and peaceful note to each moment.

Monum’s design makes a statement and reinforces mindful observance of the present. In addition to their actual function, thanks to their coordinating shapes, the products can also function as original sculpture. The four handless cups can be stacked in a tapering tower that will be an eye-catching feature in any room.

The colour concept combines white with a warm claret shade, that is available, depending on the item, as a single colour or a highlight effect. All Monum tableware items are also available entirely in white. The particular appeal of this version is the contrasting matt and shiny surfaces, in varying finishes. The plates and mugs are completely glazed. The handleless cups, available in the four sizes of espresso, coffee, cappuccino and mug, and the two different sized bowls combine different surface finishes in a sophisticated effect. Completely glazed insides meet unglazed matt outside surfaces, dipped in a shiny transparent or claret-coloured glaze down to the lower edge. The collection is rounded off by a jug, available in two colour versions.

Monum has been designed for anyone who lives a conscious and mindful life and wants to incorporate unusual design ideas into their home. The sculptural shapes add a modern, spiritual touch to the Premium Porcelain. The sophisticated range includes all the products you need to relax and enjoy your favourite drink or food – no matter whether alone or with friends, but always with a mindful living approach.
