0901, Singlet Collection, 2003

Two spoons, a fork, and a knife have a texture that was made from casting knitted textiles. These rich surfaces envelop the part of the object we cradle with our hands and fingers. A cast porcelain cup appears to be softly wrapped in a cozy knit. The visual cue of a perceived textile softens our tactile expectations, beckoning the eye toward a comforting meal. Designed by Verena Schreppel.
