"Mere Bowl was inspired by a small piece of porcelain that Salla made on the lathe in our studio - the contrast between its round conical shape and the line of its pinched bottom inspired us to continue experimenting. Creating paper prototypes, we created bowl-like surfaces by folding them, then continued to translate these shapes into more concrete objects with plastic." 

Made from ceramic stoneware covered in a glossy glaze, available in three colours, and raised by a discreet foot, its surface captures the light in a sensual way, with a subtle sense of tactility.  As in the origami tradition, the design essentially explores light and shadow. The central fold dictates a play of shadows. It's as simple as it is ingenious, as a line down the middle folds over the sides to form a bowl.

Studio Kaksikko

Studio Kaksikko

Kaksikko is a Helsinki-based design studio specialising in ceramic tableware and wooden furniture, founded by Salla Luhtasela and Wesley Walters. The duo share an interest in functional, understated forms that emphasise the tactile qualities of each material, as well as in the production process itself. They met while studying at Aalto University's School of Art, Design and Architecture and have collaborated on a wide range of professional projects under the name Kaksikko.

Their practice naturally blends the art of making with that of designing. Rather than being a means to an end, Kaksikko's ideas are born from the shaping of a material by hand. Most often this is clay. Their products always revolve around their studio's ceramics and woodworking workshops.
