KLOTS presents a festive medley of classical elegance and quirky creations for a festive dessert service. Liviani Putri reports.
Inspired by festive images of forrests in winter, Claudia Halim and her team at Klots created a contemporary Christmas dessert table. “We love the image of falling pine needles and we present cluttered pine sprigs and pine cones as a signature touch,” she explains. “This time, we want to do something different by incorporating unusual elements and a variety of handmade pieces related to a traditional Christmas celebration.”
For this informal dining set, Klots uses its latest collection of furniture and accessories. The dining table comes from Century Furniture, is made from solid oak with wood veneer and features acrylic legs. Side chairs in organic flowing shapes beautifully complement the table. As the theme is dessert, the delicacies served on it include vanilla cake with fruit, chocolate, and Swiss meringue buttercream together with fruity tres leches cake, key lime pie and an abundance of cupcakes. All of these sit gracefully on handcrafted cake stands, plates and leather trays.
Two Fusca vases from Bosa, designed by Constance Guisset, stand tall as the centerpiece of the setting. “We put in a touch of nature as the vase has organic lines and an exquisite finish, Claudia explains. “The evocative shape of the vases and the curve of their collars sparks the imagination. Balancing out the centerpiece are unusual glass vases that like droplets. And to freshen up the setting, we use an arrangement of hydrangea flowers.”
A selection of unique pieces of varying height and shape were then added to further elevate the setting. “The crystal collection from Atelier Swarovski creates the impression of a glimmering evening. It starts from a series of lanterns designed by Tord Boontje along with tealight holders and vases by John Pawson. Our handmade futuristic candle holder creates a warm and inviting atmoshphere,” Claudia goes on. “Another unique addition is the Pellicano decanter designed by Jaime Hayon, which features soft, feminine forms inspired by the elegance of the pelican.

Nixon cake knifes from Jonathan Adler accompany the set. Drinks are then poured from the quirky Pellicano decanter.
