Collage Tea Service (2019 Henry Van de Velde Award)
Designers: Giel Dedeurwaerder & Brent Neve
Giel Dedeurwaerder: “The Collage tea service is based on the perfect balance between material, shape and proportion, and on the idea that tableware can also serve perfectly well as decoration, instead of being stored away after use.”
Inspired by Japanese designs, Giel Dedeurwaerder and Brent Neve from the designer collective Utilise.objects created cups made of solid acacia wood and a cast-iron teapot. The combination of the warm wood tone and the indestructible cast iron gave the service exactly those durable, functional, and aesthetic characteristics that the duo was looking for. And those same features have been awarded the Henry Van de Velde Awards 2019 in the Habitat category.
