“In the old Japan, it was said that one could clearly distinguish porcelain from any other ceramic material by its sound”.
Lightness counter to hardness, delicacy counter to deepness and minimalism counter to a meaningful and strong concept is the spirit of our collection.
This set of plates has a perfect balance between the crisp clean look of porcelain and the irregularities of handmade processes, leaving the viewer to experience both worlds in a delicate dance of the senses.
Glazed with a glossy black and fired to 1280ºC, porcelain is waterproof, harder and thus highly resistant to scratching, acids or heat.
The bowls are a perfect complement to the dinner set, providing the volumetric experience of this finish. Made as light as the material allowed us, we left the raw porcelain in the outside, procuring direct contact with the thin roughness of the material. Glazed on the inside to functionally be food safe, creates a balance of mate outside and reflected light inside, that provides deepness yet almost unperceivable experience.
The black pearl of dinnerware, black porcelain is a rare material: besides the porcelain hardness and otherworldly appearance, it shows extremely deep and profound darkness.
Specifically formulated for this project, this black porcelain has been craftily processed after long research: choosing the right type of porcelain, drying it and mixing natural oxides and minerals to find the perfect black. A unique material, not found on the market, that makes a very special and exclusive dinnerware set for minimalistic kitchens.
