It was one of those evenings where I ended up browsing through Etsy’s treasures. One thing led to another and in no time I found Mondocubo‘s small porcelain collection. As much as I do love color, white is omnipresent in my home in two areas: Tableware and bed linens. I do have a couple of blue Japanese bowls in the kitchen but that sums it up. I love the pureness of white and nothing highlights better food than simple white dishes.
Mondocubo is a Berlin-based design project between the architect Rossella Flammia and the designer Paolo Picone who studied architecture at the University of Naples “Federico II” before moving to Berlin in 2009 to work for artists’ collectives and art studios. They design and realize themselves small-series products in their studio/atelier located at European Creative Center in Berlin Weißensee.
The exquisite bare shape and mat finish of their Positano carafe and cups collection reminded me of the first time, ten years ago, that I saw the collection of Hering, another Berlin based company producing wonderful tableware.
