Together with Dutch22 and the Vista Alegre factory, Mieke Cuppen transformed her idea of a porcelain tableware set into a real product. This Beyond set is an additional line on her earlier produced stoneware set, which translates into the same kind of vibe in the patterns she used. Humble but unique would be the best way to describe her designs and the overall feeling of the full set.
This porcelain tableware set will be on the market in February 2019.
A porcelain tableware set by Mieke CuppenKeep me updated
Mieke Cuppen designs tableware on the cutting edge of functionality and aesthetics. She often departs from the classic model and chooses a more open design. By working with new shapes, patterns or materials, she gives her work a gastronomic signature. By not assigning it a function, she creates a service that is multifunctional. Sometimes Mieke is also surprised by the application. For example, her Amuse tower is now also used for breakfast presentations in high-end hotels.
“As a designer I do not determine the function; I only think about what it could be used for. I see my work as a canvas, in which I interact with the chef and the user. Together we look for boundaries that can be broken in food and eating patterns.”
Creativity with an eye on the market
Mieke graduated from the Design Academy Eindhoven in 2008. In her studio in Rotterdam she digitally models in Rhino and Z-Brush and physically creates models in clay and plaster. She was selected twice for a design residence at Vista Alegre and Kahla. From this flowed her Texture line and the Volumes collection. Mieke works with porcelain, stoneware, glass, brass, bagasse and other materials.
