Maurizio Distefano Licensing, licensing agent for the International Space Archives (ISA), has announced an agreement with Hermet, a homeware company, 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 images of space exploration missions and the symbol of the American space program. The collection will be distributed in mass-market stores and in specialty stores for home furnishings. It will also be available online.
For the first time ever, the International Space Archives has brought together still and video imagery into one comprehensive collection which is available for licensing worldwide through LMI, and in Italy through MDL.
The Mission Patches, photos, films and video contained in the archive come from a variety of sources including the American space program, as well as the international space programs of Russia, Japan, China, India and the European Union.
"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,” says Maurizio Distefano, president, Maurizio Distefano Licensing.
