To gain more knowledge on aesthethics in product design I attended two courses focusing on form design at Chalmers, Göteborg.
The objective was to design a porcelain dinner set which required research in the industry of porcelain product manufacturing. The project was done in groups of two student.
Inspiration is taken from the snow deserts and combined with the fluidity of water. The latter has a relationship with the way food is consumed by the users, with a fluid motion.
The overall appearance of the set is very fluidly and calm on the lower level. The level of complexity rises with the height of the set. Where the calm contours relate to the motion of snow dunes, the more complex contours resemble splashes of water. The contrast of material and color of the in- and outside is derived from contrasts caused by light on water.
