Every piece of Aldo’s tableware collection started from a movement and a service ritual informing a shape and evoking a gesture related to fluid or powder. The Water Carafe is a unique interpretation of how to serve water. The white porcelain carafe is designed to sit horizontally on the table in such a way that even when filled up, the carafe contains water.
The cooperation between Aldo and Frans Ottink started with the production of the Porcelain Tableware series for Thomas Eyck, a Dutch publisher, and distributor of design pieces. Since then, Frans has been responsible for the porcelain products that have been initiated from within the studio.
