Hybrid design – Rachel and Benoît Convers

16 Oct

Ming Vase – source

Designers Rachel & Benoît Convers together with business manager Carine Jannin are the creative force behind the French design studio ibride. The word ibride is french for hybrid, which is a reflection of their furniture and accessories designs which aims to alter the usual perception of the objects that they design.  The results are fun and functional, and certainly create a talking piece.

Their most recent design is the Chinese Ming inspired vase, which brings the ancient influences of China into a contemporary, and practical, accessory. with a collection of bowls which stack to form a Ming inspired vase.


Available in White, Red or black. I love the block colour which opens up to reveal an array of plates and bowls with intricate designs, a little secret in the vase.


If you like these you may also love a few of their other famous designs, such as the animal character platters and the cardboard animals which double up as sideboards and shelves…. certainly containing that eclectic charm to give a little talking piece to your home.

And for those of you who prefer a little something for your wardrobe their scarves are well worth a look too, inspired by nature I love them..

Let me know what you think…. meanwhile on with the colourful journey……

    It is hard for me to wrap my mind (and I’m creative) around this kind of art. I’d like to be stranded on a desert island with their imagination.

    I have 5 of your trays. They fascinate me. I am in love with them. The subject matter, the humor, the creativity and sophistication. I am a real fan. Sabra Brea , Miami, Florida
