serve & store




my love for different kind of ceramics is still very strong
last week when I received the latest issue of the ELLE decoration.nl
my attention was instantly drawn when I saw the inspiring portret of Dutch
 philosopher, writer and designer Merel Kamp.

Merel was nominated for the Rijksstudio Award 2014, hosted by the Rijksmuseum
with the design of her Lamp Pouring Light (photo 3),  inspired by "het Melkmeisje",
the Milkmaids jug,  the famous painting of Dutch painter Vermeer 

Beside the beautiful lamp I was also attracted 
by her beautiful "Serve & Store" tableware collection
I really love the sober and matte design of this a great mix of 
plates and bowles in different shapes and sizes.
The tableware collection is designed to reduce the use of 
plastic film in the household,  each part of the set can be closed
 with another part of the set so there will be no plastic waste. 

see and read more about the work of Merel Kamp here or here

ps. unfortunately the tableware is not yet widely available. For a long time Merel has produced the collection
 by herself but now she is looking for a producer. Ofcourse you can always send a mail to Merel
 if you are interested in her work or if you would like to order something

                                                                                                      photos by Merel Kamp with thanks!
