Tea Set by Tomás Alonso
Published on December 12, 2012
People who know Tomás Alonso’s work, often executed in simple wood, they strike one as light, three-dimensional sketches, will hardly associate him with silver. So their (Wiener Silber Manufactur) collaboration for Vienna Design Week 2011 was all the more fascinating. Alonso approached it with the “functionality of the pattern” in mind: a plain tea service with fluted pattern on the underside of the set and the upper side of the tray, both interlocked with each other.
An ensemble that simultaneously combines harmony with wilful originality.
A project commissioned for Passionwege as part of Vienna Design Week 2011. The Passionswege program aims to promote traditional Viennese craftsmanship companies by teaming with different international designers for each addition.
They have worked alongside with Wiener Silber Manufactur, experts in the manipulation of silver; producing pieces by great names from the Wiener Werkstädte including Hoffmann, Prutsher and Haerdtl.
