From outer space–inspired place settings and rainbow-hued serving trays to unfussy flatware, five new sets of tableware from Seletti, Alessi, Vitra and more.
1 Cosmic Diner by for Diesel Living
This series includes space-themed planet plates, meteorite glasses and rocket ship pepper grinders and candleholders, as well as brass serving dishes and a centerpiece modelled after Saturn. Most delightful: the textural black stoneware coffee cups and bowls, which are pockmarked like the moon.
2 Classic Trays by Alexander Girard’s colourful, abstract and geometric graphics decorate this series of laminated plywood trays. Available in different shapes and sizes, the cheery pieces serve many purposes.
3 Broken Bowl by Designer Maximilian Schmahl folded the familiar fruit bowl along its diameter, “breaking” it in half to allow for separate arrangements in one vessel. It’s available in polished stainless steel or finished with a super black epoxy resin.
4 New Norm Cutlery by Building on a dinnerware series that includes plates, bowls and glasses, this simple but sleek flatware by was designed to suit any occasion, and for both residential and restaurant use.
5 Porcelain dinner plates by The bleeding basket weave pattern on these handmade and hand-painted porcelain plates creates an arresting optical effect. A top glaze gives them durability; they are dishwasher and microwave safe.
