Tools for food were the first objects designed by humans, we need them to survive. Looking the tools evolution from sharp stones to modern hi-tech tools, I noted that plates didn't change radically their shapes. Why do we stick with this round shape? The reasons are many but the most relevant is the habit: in this round shape, we eat for thousands of years. The most used material is still clay and porcelain, that's why I think we must be respectful to these disciplines.
Next Pot is a tableware set that wants to explore the function of a normal plate with new experiences. Each object is designed for having new eating interaction with a specific recipe or with other diners. All the object are made by artisans with different techniques in order to have an efficient production and to give work and new possibilities to craft workshops.
