L’utopie du tout li√®ge
The title of this project mimics a famous French book that documents plastic products of the space age.
The project¬†consists of¬† “utopian tableware items” in which a cork element is used on each piece,¬†always with a different ¬†function, be it thermic insulation, grip or drop-stopping.
The pictures document the prototypes I developed for¬†MIRO¬†architects who, having the idea of using cork for a set of tableware items,¬† asked me to develop the project.
I decided to pair cork with white ceramic and blue glass and then zoomed in on three different¬†moments of the day: ¬†there are three objects with breakfast in mind, three for aperitifs and appetizers and three for lunch and dinner (one is not shown yet for copyright reasons – it’s a wine glass).
