eragatory cutlery set by isaie bloch

 

 

 

aside of the functional aspect of tableware, silverware has always been and will perpetually be an ornamental figure. conceived to pleasure the eye while fulfilling one of our most primary needs of food consumption and squander. cutlery is unique in its ability to sustain time and carries a remarkable family heritage. sets of knifes, spoons, forks have been passed on from generation to generation all over the globe, traveling the whole world as a piece of personal history.

 

key elements in the kitchen set by belgian designer isaïe bloch explores the notion of decay/processing, ornamental and aesthetic excess as in former rococo and baroque times, moments of collapse/disequilibrium and a balance in between etiquette dining and torture tools. by subverting the logic of perfection and beauty, non-perfect images coming from controlled methodologies are generated. what used to be about mastering the result of a non-perfect process is now about the production of monstrosity and the grotesque throughout very accurate mechanisms,  like 3d printing.
