Travelling, fresh food, interiors and design kind of sum up my favourite things in life I love to share with family and friends. Not an easy task these days to find inspiration from travelling or interior fairs.
Something we do not need to travel or leave the house for though are good food and design, and for today’s post I loved to style ‘the table’ with an imaginary dinner for two and a few selected pieces from the Inku tableware by Sergio Herman and the passe-partout kitchen and tableware by Vincent van Duysen, both designers collaborating on a regularly base with Serax, find some other pieces of the collection at my w/ style partner Wen her blog BeeldSteil
During his culinary trips to Japan, Sergio Herman was completely fascinated by the local and pure tableware. With Inku Sergio Herman translated that Japanese simplicity into a dynamic atmosphere and the glamour of a fully-fledged brasserie. Inku is the signature tableware in Sergio’s Le Pristine, a brasserie in which he combines the region of Zeeland with Italian culinary flair.
Passe-Partout By Vincent van Duysen
Included in the AD100 survey by the Architectural Digest network multiple times, Vincent van Duysen needs no introduction. Next to product design for numerous international brands, to commercial and large-scale architectural projects, with a focus on high-end residences all over the world, he was appointed as creative director of Italian brands Molteni&C and Dada in 2016, reshaping their global image by designing flagship stores, exhibition stands and a series of new products. From 2018 to May 2020, he covered the role of art director at Sahco for Kvadrat, after which he has been collaborating as a senior designer.
In the Serax collection numerous design by Vincent is present, including one of the latest: Passe-Partout. A black & white porcelain table and glassware and a series of cutlery and wooden accessories. By stacking or by playing with the contrasting white and black exterior colours countless visual effects can be created.
