Topoware: Eating is a Journey
MocoLoco interviews Alexandra Deschamps-Sonsino and Karola Torkos about their Topoware, which "is a tableware collection that questions the landscape of dining. Taking inspiration from the recent popularity of geography as a media [sic] of communication (with Google maps) and more specifically with topographic maps, which define heights of a landscape two dimensionally, Topoware in turn, "outlines" the dining experience."
Made up of cups, plates, bowls, placemats and a tablecloth, the collection explores the visual and social landscape of dining by using outlines and descriptions to describe, question and push our eating experience, making it really feel like a journey."
From the Designers Website:
"This set made of bowls, salad plates and dinner plates see the lines reappear in playful ways to label your dining habits. Each piece adresses a different issue or poses a different question. Are you hungry, very hungry or done? Are you modest or greedy? Do you have a mom/dad or child portion?"
