'Ovale' by Ronan & Erwan Bouroullec

The Paris based Bouroullec brothers recently completed this new tableware collection, designed for the Italian manufacturer Alessi. The relatively thick-walled yet elagant cups and pans are a perfect combination of classiness and tradition – “Delicate, slightly expressive, simple, almost neo-primitive” how Alberto Alessi describes it.

This is how Ronan and Erwan described the project. “The Ovale collection strives to be original, but it also wants to be rustic and traditional. We set out in pursuit of delicate expression. This composition speaks about every day life, about breakfast, lunch, about everyone getting together for dinner. There is a desire for simplicity”.
