'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.
'Pieces of Π' by Dik Scheepers
The Dutch designer Dik Scheepers realised this rough yet beautiful pieces of porcelain tableware as his graduation project at Academie Beeldende Kunsten Maastricht.
Instead of creating a perfect smooth mould Dik uses modular forms which enable him to interchange the segments and build a variety of shapes.
