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.
An ensemble that simultaneously combines harmony with wilful originality!
