Erased Classic Collection

Erased Classic

Motifs taken from Italian wall coverings and Indian saris form the basis of this multi-award-winning collection. The strictly ordered ornamental elements of traditional carpets are broken up. In some places, the patterns, which were originally repeated per­fec­­­­­tly, seem to have been obliterated, soaked with acid and corroded. This is how the ERASED CLASSIC collection was born – an entirely new formal language that Jan Kath is constantly developing. Professor Volker Fischer from the Frankfurt Museum of Applied Arts writes, “Jan Kath is the poet of the past and currently the most distinguished designer of memento mori products.” The aesthetics of mortality and decay represent a driving force to Jan Kath. In this regard, he has been inspired by his visits both to the world’s largest cities and, very sig­nificantly, by his own home, the Ruhr. Derelict mines, weathered old storehouses, and the reclamation of space by nature are of particular interest to him, as is the tension between old and new.
