Behind the designs of our Sol collection

With tropical prints, an optimistic yet nostalgic colour palette and a cool Californian vibe, our new Sol tea and coffee collection for SS21 brings some much-needed escapism into your kitchen. Read on to discover our designers’ inspiration behind these sunny tableware pieces.

The inspiration

In summer 2019, our homeware design team travelled to LA to gather ideas for this season’s designs. They visited galleries, boutiques and the famous Rose Bowl market, talking to different people to learn about laidback Californian life. A road trip to Palm Springs and The Joshua Tree National Park ignited their inspiration. “We drove there at sunset and experienced all the incredible colour changes of the landscape as the sun went down” says OB’s homeware print designer, Emily. “It was such a peaceful moment”.
