The NEW NORMAL Tableware – Zagreb, Croatia

“Despite coronavirus safety rules, our conceptual tableware retains that important social and cultural dimension of dining -sharing,” explained the founder of Studio Boir, Ivan Zidar, to Dezeen.

After creating SAL⊥ in 2019, a tool to enable the optimal salt crystallization, Studio Boir is now presenting The Boir’s tableware, The New Normal collection, the exploration on traditional dining rituals during the coronavirus pandemic situation that brings many restrictions to prevent the spread of the infection.

With its collection, studio Boir considers how to achieve balance between intimacy and safe distance within the context of the “new normal“, as reported in the Studio Boir’s official website.

The steel and stone tableware is designed in response to plexiglass barriers that prevent any attempt of food sharing between two people. The NEW NORMAL Collection includes 5 sets of products:…

Dessert For Two & Bread Basket: – using long spoons, the couple can feed and nurture one another while maintaining a safe distance & simple form divided by a barrier, allowing for bread consumption without fear of physical contact.

Platter For Two & Prosciutto Rack: – a circular serving form divided in two with a scuptural rock as a natural barrier and protector & a table installation that reinterprets the traditional prosciutto serving plate.

Amuse bouche / Sushi platter: – a centrally placed rock subtly separates the two sides of a thin steel platter, where bite-size portions are elegantly served for two.

The steel and stone tableware is designed in response to plexiglass barriers that prevent any attempt of food sharing between two people.

Minimalist, geometrically shaped steel forms ensure sterile and safe food serving, while unique pieces handcrafted from natural stone fragments soften the stern impression.

If you would like to stock their products in your store or source a custom-made design object for a unique project, they are happy to hear from you. Orders, requests and collaborations are possible by email.
