“Historically, the material tells the story of the development of the civilisation.” says Claesson Koivisto Rune. “Today, the material tells the story of its intended use. As a functional object the bowl has always belonged to all cultures, all around the world.”

The largest bowl in the set, a fruit bowl, is made of polished stainless steel. The next largest, made in dark brown melamine, is for preparing food or salads and the middle bowl is made of oven-safe glazed stoneware for foods au gratin. The small bowl is made of turned solid wood, for nuts and other snacks and the smallest is made of green glass, useful as a caster sugar container.

“The bowl must be functional. A beautiful bowl that doesn’t works is not really… beautiful. The idea is five simple bowls that are different but clearly belong to the same family. When apart each has its own shape, size and material – suggesting its use. Put together they form a unified set.”
