The Michael Aram New Leaves Collection is a celebration of the beauty and meaning found in individual leaves. Inspired by specific types of foliage that have taken on sentimental meaning in Michael’s life, this collection embodies his genuine passion for nature in its purest and most personal form. Each leaf has its own story, its own symbolism and its own inherent wonder, detail and shape. For the first time, Michael is also interpreting an entire collection of leaves in the proportions in which they actually occur in nature, amplifying the sense of realism for which he is so well known. While each leaf is expressed as a sculptural object, Michael has yet again managed to infuse function into his forms, making them perfect for the most elemental moments in our daily lives.
“I have a Ginkgo tree outside my bedroom window in New York City and its leaves sometimes blow through my second story window. In all seasons, the tree is beautiful. It imparts a sense of calm to me and somehow I know that, like the Ginkgo, I have the strength to persevere, no matter what life has in store.”
