Due to the popularity of the Texture plates, the collection is being expanded to include a dinner plate, side plate and two bowls. A true addition to the collection.
A bold texture has been chosen for all new items: 'escamas' or in plain English, scales. The interplay of light and shadow on the unglazed porcelain creates a beautiful interaction highlighting textures.
As consistent with the Texture collection, I manually carve the texture into the plaster models, and these are then translated into the master moulds from the selected Vista Alegre items, finalising the collections expansion.
Vista Alegre comments on the series:
“Just as its name suggests, these items designed by the Dutch tableware specialist, Mieke Cuppen, places emphasis on texture. Texture allows playing with plating, thanks to a surface that influences how and where food is placed. The transition from a soft glazed texture to one that is unglazed, in addition to the interactions and contrasts arising with other pieces and materials stand to make this piece even more tempting.”
This design has won the German Design Award 2020 in the category "Tabletop" and the Iconic Award 2020 in the category "Innovative Interior".
