O - The better place
Design: Barbara Schmidt
The "O – The better place" series is limited to only a few multifunctional pieces. Still, it has all the essential functions of tableware. The distinct fold on the upper side of the porcelain offers the chef new opportunities to creatively stage his culinary creations and divides all pieces into two zones: one a space for the food, the other a surface for holding the dish. This series was inspired by folded paper, by the technique of origami, which literally means: oru = fold, kami = paper.
On the underside of the "O – The better Place" articles and on the inner surfaces of the cup handles, a little surprise is hidden: a delicate relief consisting of additional folds. When the porcelain is placed on the table, the texture is barely visible and only on the tall pieces. If you hold it in your hand, you experience the tactile stimulation coming from the textured underside.
