A City of Ceramics by Four Dutch Designers

November 5, 2012

Four female designers with similar design DNA (all 2009 Design Academy Eindhoven graduates) decide to share a studio and work together under the name De Intuïtifabriek. Their first project, launched at DMY Berlin, was to combine their individual already existing works into a "Metropolis" of tableware where “vases become buildings, flowers become bridges, bowls become valleys, and spoons become ladders.”

N.B. De Intuïtifabriek recently launched their first collection of slipcast porcelain cups, bowl, and plates at the 2012 Dutch Design Week in Eindhoven; go to De Intuïtifabriek for more information.
