“Nouer” is a playful service consisting of a cake platter, a cake server, a sugar bowl, plates and spoons. The ensemble has been designed based on the traditional Langnauer ceramics of the eighteenth and nineteenth century. The digitally drawn etched decoration, produced using a cutting plotter, lends the ceramic pieces a contemporary idiom. In addition to potter’s clay, some of the pieces are milled out of pear wood, creating a tactile contrast to the earthenware. “Nouer” echoes the past and is an open invitation to enjoy cake together.
