When it comes to tableware, are traditional round dishes hopelessly square? Architect and designer Vidó Nóri’s brand new geometric collection not only casts aside the circular shape, but also ditches ceramics for the industrial appeal of concrete.

The gently bent trays and dramatically creased bowls might be more statement and special occasion pieces than the stuff you’d reach for every day; but they are machine washable, and domestic chefs with an eye for presentation could probably have a ton of fun plating their home-cooked meals, given all the new angles and multi-level potential. Pair the collection with Arne Jacobsen’s classic cutlery from 2001: A Space Odyssey and you’d have yourself a pretty stylin’ spread.


These babies were just introduced this week during the London Design Festival, so contact Nóri directly for purchasing and pricing info (which ranges from between $20 and $80 depending on the piece and size of order). [Design Milk]
