X+Q Art unveils their grand collaboration piece with MEISSEN® in their return to M&O Paris 2016

2. September 2016

X+Q Art made their international debut in Maison & Objet Paris 2015 last year, and on September 2, X+Q Art will strike again in this major design fair, occupying the first row location in Hall 7. X+Q Art will introduce their latest sculpture collection, their brand new “X+Q Artisan” line, and their collaboration piece with MEISSEN® Germany. Being the top lifestyle brand in China, X+Q strives to represent the ‘Made in China’ innovation and creativity on an international stage.

In this fair, “Angel of Joy”, latest collaboration by X+Q Art and MEISSEN®, will be showcased for the very first time. The art piece is inspired by X+Q Art’s classic “Rainbow Angel Ÿ Hong”, and crafted by renowned German porcelain brand MEISSEN® representing “discreet European luxury”. Together with the iconic Meissen “Flowers and Insects” patterns by Maria Sibylla Merian, it is an angel of joy, happiness and tranquility.

MEISSEN® has represented the European artisan spirit for over 300 years, and its wide range of avid collectors spans from Empress Elisabeth of Austria to Madame de Pompadour. On the other hand, X+Q Art epitomizes the flourishing Chinese Contemporary art, its collectors includes modern Chinese elites Wang Shi, Ma Yun and etc. In this collaboration, the East and the West, the Classic and the Modern harmonize together in the most elegant of manner.

In Qu Guangci’s opinion, the abundant use of hand-painted plant and insect patterns by MEISSEN® is not purely an outcome of western culture. It happened to coincide with the elements of traditional Chinese painting, which include flowers, birds, fish and insects, reflecting an oriental conception. Meanwhile, although the image of angel comes from western culture, the angel by X+Q Art can well represent contemporary China. This collaboration is bound to create a very unique charm of blending Eastern and Western elements.
