benjamin hubert: pots for menu at maison et objet

 

 

benjamin hubert presents a new series of storage containers at maison et objet 2013. produced in collaboration with danish brand menu, the ‘pots’ collection stems from the studio’s research into the typologies and language associated with ancient and contemporary methods of keeping products cool and dry through the utilization of terracotta.

each of benjamin hubert’s vessels feature an exterior of natural, raw terracotta which contrasts their with gloss glazed interior and soft rubber lids. the grouping of objects represent an uncompromising distinction between the ancient traditions found in terracotta and the industrial modernity embedded in the mass-produced rubber lids. ‘pots’ provide an earthen landscape of sculptural, but functional pieces for your kitchen table, desk or windowsill. the four different container typologies have been conceived to fulfil specific functions, or house certain ingredients of your choice:

 

1. a tall djembe-like sculpture with a distinct waistline that holds your spaghetti or grissini so you can easily grasp it without lifting the pot.2. a container with a wide pouring area making it easy for you to control the dispense of pastas and grains.3. a small, pouring device with a long neck allowing for controlled dispensing of seeds, grains and sugar.4. a stout cookie jar that can be twisted and turned to encourage sharing.
