Sketches Snail bowl
Designed by Hella Jongerius , a designer who works on the cusp of design craft, art and technology...she breathes new life into forgotten designs and techniques... ceramic.... lifting from history, traditional motifs, Hella goes over the top... love her sense of humour and great craftsmanship.
Snails are the perfect shape for being a tape dispenser! This is one of the cutest examples of office supplies I've ever seen.
What a fun little bookshelf for kids. This must make reading that much more fun, not to mention organizing books and cleaning up after a reading session. It's great to see great design aimed at children.
Hella Jongerius chose a modest snail #483, designed by Wilhelm Neuhäuser (1910), to compliment the ornate decoration from the Korb dinnerware pattern #1419 (designed in 1770).
