Imagine your favourite mug, maybe it used to be your grandmother’s. Have you ever wondered about the history that led it to your morning tea? And have you thought about what the future might have in store for it once your paths diverge?
We present to you a blossoming utopian vision of overgrown landscapes, a lush and colourful future of design in green wetlands and flowering meadows where nature has taken over the world of humans too. All that remains are their resilient and feral pets – lizards. What they have left from the days of civilisation is a fondness for certain human artefacts, namely our favourite ceramic design products. They serve them as meeting places, shrines or magical landscapes for scaly rendezvous.
In this series of photographs, our collective imagination has taken us to an alternate future that exists (probably) only in our visions. Here we present the timeless ceramic and porcelain creations of young designers. They bring to the Czech brand Křehký a gust of fresh breeze, which we have complemented with the scent of freshly picked lilac and intoxicating lilies.
Welcome to a world of extraordinary hidden nooks and crannies, drowning in an explosion of colour and shape.
