The table is a stage for culinary events. Saucers, bowls, cutlery, dishes, pans, vases, guests, candles: they all form part of a scenography that let the food shine in all its glory. And the stage, be it at home or in a restaurant, requires dramaturgy. Not having everything revealed at the same moment, but secrets exposed one after another. Lift the lid to present flavour and fragrances retained within, while keeping the culinary surprises hot or cold
The different objects are abstract yet familiar, alluding to age-old traditions refined to perfection. ‘There is a moment of surprise when you lift the lid,’ says Carina Seth Andersson. ‘The secrets of the chef unveiled! Together these earthenware objects will create a whole little landscape on the table.’ The trend to bring forward a multitude of different dishes for the table certainly does require the stage be set with a variety of vessels. Glazed on the inside, raw but softly polished on the exterior, the three black and clay-coloured earthenware canisters are available in three different sizes.
