Emma Knaken graduated Cum laude in product design at ArtEZ Arnhem in 2022. She prefers to work directly with her hands and thinks while making. Her designs are playful and made to be touched. By the use of colour she gives life to the stories of her products. During Glue she will show her graduation work Moōn.
Playful tableware objects that invite you to create a different dining experience.
Moōn is designed as a landscape on your table, made up of objects that will change the way you look at dining. The objects are made of wood, glass, and ceramics. The shapes, colours, and textures invite you to let go of your boundaries and play with the food and the table setting. This project was designed on the basis of my own experience. I often take the time to create an appealing table setting, regardless of whether I am eating alone or with other people. I carefully choose my tableware; I make it cosy. However, I have noticed that, in this busy and rushed world, it can be hard to make time to eat extensively. So, with my project I want to show what tableware can do for our eating pleasure. Because I believe we need to see food as a celebration again, instead of a necessity.
Let’s start to enjoy and ‘play with’ our food!
