Design & Food

What’s not to like about playing with beautiful ceramics and my favorite food. And not to forget chocolate.. It goes without saying that I enjoy this at home and alone. The current situation needs no further explanation and the food tasted just as good. The wonderful Inku collection designed by top chef Sergio Herman for Serax was the inspiration for my photos. It also goes without saying that design and food make a very good combination.

The Japanese Wabi-Sabi  ‘Art of Imperfection’ was the starting point for the Inku series. Every piece has a character of its own. Due to the production process and the glaze finish, no item is exactly the same. The tableware collection exists of plates, bowls, cups and pastry bowls in different sizes and designs. Available in two colors: White and Dark Green. The dark green looks like anthracite or black, depending on how it catches the light. The Inku collection is refined and almost looks a bit fragile, but it is tough with a bit sober look due to the colors and minimalistic design. which refers to nature and Japanese blossom. I like the abstract shapes, it is very photogenic too.

It is clear what my favorite food is and that it fits in perfectly with Inku’s design and philosophy. Any food would look wonderful on this ceramic tableware.  Also deserts and chocolate, especially on the Inku Pastry Bowl. Which is very versatile and certainly not only for sweets. I use it for several purposes. As a display for herbs and spices on the kitchen counter for example.

Even a single Inku item makes your table or coffee break more beautiful with the look of a graphic ceramic blossom. For the best food and design experience, you have to visit Le Pristine Brasserie in Antwerp. It is definitely on my wish list!  Do you like more inspiration on how to use the Serax Inku series?
