Kintsugi Tableware Set by Davide Chiesa & Andrea Croci

Home > Winners > #50695


DESIGN DETAILS
DESIGN NAME:
Kintsugi

PRIMARY FUNCTION:
Tableware Set

INSPIRATION:
Kintsugi means literally repair with gold and it is a very ancient Japanese art, which consist to repair ceramic objects with precious metals like gold or silver, once they are broken. This technique allows to obtain some valuable objects, economically and artistically: every single repaired object presents a different drawing of golden lines which is unique and not repeatable because of the casualty of the broken ceramic fragments. Kintsugi has developed during centuries the idea that from the material imperfections comes out an event greater form of aesthetic and interior perfection.

UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
this tableware take is origin from the ancient ceramic japanese technique of Kintsugi, which allows to repair dishes and other pieces with some gold strings.

OPERATION / FLOW / INTERACTION:
The decoration of this tableware is made in three different positions and the simultaneous use of all the elements allows an incredible variety of different combination of the golden lines. This is not only a very elegant and luxurious decoration, but also a geometrical inspiration for sophisticated mise en place.

PROJECT DURATION AND LOCATION:
The project started in Milan in September 2016 with the first sketches and has been developed during winter 2016 and 2017 for this competition

PRODUCTION / REALIZATION TECHNOLOGY:
This project has been conceived with the new technology of 3D printing. In the future 3D printing will be used for every kind of application and this tableware is printed directly in ceramic and metal materials. This means that anyone can get this tableware as an object in every part of the world by their own, reducing shipping costs and reducing also the use of wrapping material for shipping, which is very important for the environmental situation.

SPECIFICATIONS / TECHNICAL PROPERTIES:
Dinner plate diam. 27 Dinner plate diam. 25 Soup plate diam. 22 Side plate diam. 20 Bowl diam. 17

TAGS:
Kintsugi, Tableware, Ceramic, Gold, 3d Print

RESEARCH ABSTRACT:
There is a very interesting research about the connection between past and future. The idea that a sort of casual and artistic gold decoration for a ceramic piece could become an industrial and geometrical decoration for a tableware has been fascinating from the first moment. After that, this project does not build only a bridge between different times, but also between different places, connecting the far east part of the world with the European western culture.

CHALLENGE:
The hardest part of this project has surely been to find the exact connection between different materials and to transform the traditional Japanese decoration in a design concept. Ceramic and metal are two very different materials and mixing them in a tableware piece has been a big challenge. Developing a contemporary formal idea about the decoration and finding the solution in a geometrical path instead of the casual handmade original decoration was the second big challenge.
