Facing Food, Depot Roel Vandebeek
In Facing Food, Roel Vandebeek blurs the lines between applied art and product design. The basic shapes of this 20-piece porcelain service set are irregular circles. The addition of a small black dot suggests a face. The subtle placement of this “eyelet” on the porcelain and its diameter represent a considerable modification.

The plates and bowls are made in creamy white bone china, glazed on both sides. The collection consists of ten basic shapes or “characters”. They can be combined with each other, and when combined they appear to be in conversation. They are in dialogue with the environment, the food and other parts of the service set.

This service is dishwasher safe.
