Tableware comes across in all shapes and sizes. There are choices ranging from mundane to artistic. Somewhere along the spectrum are located Noa Dvoskin’s designs. Her creations imbibe a new dimension to everyday cutlery by making it interactive. Cute, imaginative and most importantly, fresh: these are some of the adjectives that immediately get associated with her collection of “Playful, Useful Tableware.” Take her teapot for instance. The design here is inspired by a racing car; more specifically its wheels. Its circular shape means that the teapot casually rolls on the table surface, until it comes to rest on the cup and pours out exactly one cup of 220cc. Then there is the “Cup on Wheels,” which the user can “drive” back and forth on the surface; swirling and twisting the drink all the while. This is accomplished by attaching wheels and a spring to the bottom of each cup.
Continuing with the playful trend is the “Boxer Cup.” The handle in this one is fashioned out after brass knuckles. Four rings on its handle are supposed to hold ingredients for a cup of coffee: sugar, coffee, packed cream and the stirring object. After these have been used and removed, the rings become the handle of the Boxer Cup. Head to her page for more interactive and imaginative designs.
