Hermet announces collaboration with the International Space Archives (ISA)
For a bedding and homeware collection inspired by space exploration
Maurizio Distefano Licensing, licensing agent for the International Space Archives (ISA), has announced an agreement with Hermet, a homeware company with extensive expertise in licensing collaborations, to develop a bedding and homeware line inspired by the ISA.
Hermet will create a bedding collection consisting of bedding sets and quilts and a homeware collection including bathroom and kitchen textiles, living room rugs and cushions, tableware and beach towels, both of which will be customized with stunningly beautiful images of space exploration missions and the famous symbol of the American space programme. The collection will be distributed in mass-market stores and in specialty stores for home
furnishings. It will also be available online.
The Mission Patches, photos, films and video contained in the archive come from a variety of sources including, of course, the American space programme, as well as the international space programmes of Russia, Japan, China, India and the European Union.
Maurizio Distefano, President of MDL, says, “We are thrilled that imagery from the International Space Archives has been an inspiration to a company like Hermet, whose creativity will I’m sure deliver an impactful and eye-catching collection dedicated to space exploration”
Over the past fifty years, manned and unmanned space programmes in the United States and other countries have amassed a huge amount of still and motion photography which is unique in its scope and splendour. For the first time ever, the International Space Archives has brought together the best of this still and video imagery into one comprehensive collection which is available for licensing worldwide through LMI Ltd, and in Italy through MDL.
