Jaime Hayón has recently produced this range of objects - each featuring a unique artwork by the designer - for Japanese ceramics company Choemon.
Also involved in the collaboration is Japanese product design brand Maruwakaya, and between the three of them, have created what we think is a beautiful collection inspired by Japanese culture.
In particular, it's the culture of the dinner table - a realm Choemon have been designing pieces for since 1879, because for over 130 years, they've made everything from tableware to tea sets by hand using traditional techniques passed on from generation to generation.
Using the word and concept ‘Tsunagari' - meaning "relationships", Jaime, Choemon and Maruwakaya put these skills into a contemporary collection.
Drawing from key ideas in Japanese culture concerning relations and links between the people at the table, food, seasons and table wares, the goal was to create pieces that help people recognise these relationships.
And the resulting series of beautifully crafted bowls, cups and vessels is a sensitive balance between the design ideals and philosophies of two cultures.
