People who know Tomás Alonso’s work – often executed in simple wood, they strike one as light, three-dimensional sketches – will hardly associate him with silver. So our collaboration for VIENNA DESIGN WEEK 2011 was all the more fascinating. Alonso approached it with the “functionality of the pattern” in mind: a plain tea service with fluted pattern on the underside of the set and the upper side of the tray, both interlocked with each other.
