Seasons by Nao Tamura
Designer Nao Tamura, has won the I SaloneSatellite Award, with a serving container made in silica sand, called Seasons. It is being shown at the SaloneSatellite, during the Milan design week 2010. Seasons is an interpretation of functional kitchen and serving ware, inspired by nature and technology, through the cultural lens of Japan.Like a real leaf, each serving dish is flexible and multi-purpose. It rolls up for storage using the benefits of silicone to insure its use in an oven or microware, able to withstand repeated dishwasher cleaning.Each leaf enjoys its own shape, stackable in its open state, and in multiples, creating a sculptural display of serving artware.
