With its mood of counterpoint and connection, the Dharma Chip and Dip bowl adds a reflective beauty to the pleasures of snacking. Beautifully balanced, the piece combines a sensuous wooden bowl for chips or crudités with a gleaming inset alloy vessel for fresh salsa or aioli.
The mix of materials is arresting yet harmonious, and the nesting oval silhouettes add to the design’s flowing appeal. Intelligent craftsmanship makes the piece easy to use and clean, and its tilted axis creates beautiful presentation. An excellent gift for an entertainer, it coordinates seamlessly with Dharma bowls and trays or makes a stunning addition to an eclectic collection.
In 1936, Alvar Aalto created this classic series. The Alvar Aalto Collection has been a staple of modern Scandinavian design and the most iconic series in the Iittala range ever since. Today, just as then, each and every piece in the Alvar Aalto Collection is mouth blown at the Iittala glass factory. Created in a wide range of colours and sizes, a votive from the Aalto Collection is a pleasure to own or give as a gift. Designed by Alvar Aalto, Pentagon Design 1936
Aria Oval Serving Bowl:
Arrondi presents a twist on the kitchen's most ceremonious of tool sets. Literally. The well-balanced handles are artfully twisted, winding such that flat areas unfold just where your fingers want to lie.
The knife has a sharp, slightly hooked point and a notched blade that together ensure that each anticipated serving is sliced through cleanly and completely. Its equally competent companion features a wide, flat serving surface. Designed by New Mexico native Aaron Johnson, each piece is forged of lustrous, durable, rust-resistant 18/10 stainless steel and is dishwasher safe. An excellent choice for an anniversary gift, or any gift-giving ocassion that welcomes cake.
Sophisticated design at its purest, Artik perfectly balances simplicity of form with a rich tactile experience. Rounded handles that beg to be held and the diagonal prongs of the forks add a unique, urban air. The solidity and weight of each piece give diners an unmistakable sense of quality with every bite they take. Designed by Arto Kankkunen, Laura Partanen 1997.
