Extruded clay tubes are squashed and cut to make cups. The structure of the cup holds the memory of the original tube from which it was produced.
Baladi is a collection of tableware, including trays, cutlery and cups, based on extrusion technology. Inspired by local Mediterranean culture, the collection is based on the act of sharing food, which creates intimacy, equality, thoughtfulness and physical proximity. This cooperative principle is echoed in the use of extrusion, a simple and cheap technology, creating long units, which are then cut into pieces. The unique forms result from innovative use of this common technology.
