Designed and produced in Porto, land of craftsmen and age-old tradition, Ginger & Jagger’s Earth to Earth collection is an evocative poetic realm, where Nature’s sculptural shapes are eternalized through handcraft, with unique artisanal techniques and an outstanding blend of superb materials such as brass, copper, exotic woods and marble.

The brand was chosen by Fendi to decorate the lobby and the seven suites of its new luxury hotel - Palazzo Fendi, located in the center of Rome.
About this invitation, Paula Sousa, founder and creative director of the brand, says that over four years Ginger & Jagger has collaborated with Dior and Fendi, and it’s present in the top hotels all over the world, whereas, therefore, is an important achievement for Portuguese design.
The Italian luxury brand chose three pieces of Ginger & Jagger, including the table faceted Marble Rock and the table lamps Tree and Amber, resulting from an exploration of materials and textures in marble and brass casting. Meet these and other pieces of Ginger & Jagger.
When we asked about the design process, Paula shared that it’s a collective effort for herself, her design team and the artisans who hand-craft the items, to bring together textures and shapes that inspire a piece. “We find wood, rocks, leaves or things that make us feel a certain way. Sometimes it’s just a picture of something or the ‘feel’ of a scene in a particular film,” she shares. Indeed, at times, they have gone out looking for specific natural items such as vines or magnolia branches because they want to work with a specific texture or “format” for a design. But the one thing they never do is bend nature to fit a design. “It’s the other way around,” Paula says. “We apply functionality to something pre-existent.”
