Was everything better before? Not really. But the sturdy and reliable utensils your grandparents and great-grandparents grew up with were well thought out, often put together ingeniously, and lasted a lifetime. Nowadays, we’d call these products functional, or minimalistic. And that’s exactly what makes them so stylish.
Ontwerpduo went back in time for Novecento. The designers allowed themselves to be inspired by early twentieth century design and brought it up to date in a series of ten objects. The collection is imbued with the modest design language of the past, and was produced using locally sourced materials – in warm, timeless colours (ochre, pink and creamy white).
