Though intent on providing the practicalities of a serving tray or bowl, Dune unashamedly delights in its contemporary cursive form and intriguing, perforated finish_

As the name suggests, the free flowing organic form of sand dunes provided the bowls creative catalyst. The two gently concave sections create the retaining areas, perfect to display fruit or serve aperitif snacks and hors d’oeuvres. The surrounding surface flares outward and flows forwards to connect with the surface and provide stability.

The incline profile of the bowl creates longer shadows toward the back, shorter to the front, as light travels through the perforated surface, produced using the 3D printing technique, with laser sintered nylon powder.

Dunes bowl was previewed in Brera District at the Milan Design Week 2014 and exhibited at the Dwell on Design conference Los Angeles.
