färg & blanche leaves traces of felt detailing on tableware for petite friture

 

maison et objet fall 2016: petite friture has collaborated with swedish design studio färg & blanche to create ‘succession’ – a collection of tableware that brings together two contrasting materials: felt and porcelain to result in a versatile dining service that is available in black or white. the collection also takes part at the london design festival with decorex.

recognized for their experimentation in felt and texture, färg & blanche collaborated with the french porcelain artisans of revol to create the moulding techniques used to highlight the felt texture and contemporary lines seen in the organic form of the petite friture bowls and plates. a non-porous and waterproof material, porcelain lends itself to being used in a contrasting way; the matte exterior juxtaposes the sheen enamel on the inner surface. furthermore, the material withstand high heats and thermal shock and can be used in the oven.

‘forms that were created around the idea of experimentation: a form covered in felt, restrained by cord and held in place after having been in the oven, now free from its cords and marked by the traces. the result is an organic form that gives the impression of unity.’ –  färg & blanche
