Pascale Naessens adds some brand-new tableware to the successful Pure collection. In terms of its shape and execution, this extensive tableware set blends in perfectly with the nostalgic feel of the Pure range, which is inspired by nature. “This blueish-purple hue pairs so nicely with food”, Pascale explains. “I always start from the food. I can already imagine the food on the plates before I’ve made them.”
While everyone stayed home during the national lockdown, Pascale Naessens withdrew into the cocoon that is her workshop. She spent many days and nights there, away from the outside world, which seemed to become increasingly frightening. “I focused on creating new tableware”, says Pascale. “In hindsight it was a very strange, albeit productive period”.
Pascale did not have to conduct that many experiments to create her new azure tableware. “It was all there already. We had been on holiday shortly before the confinement started and every night, I would lay there thinking about the things that I wanted to design, about the shapes and the colours. By the time that I was ready to get started, I had already designed an entire collection in my mind. All that remained was to produce it.”
While the new tableware seamlessly blends in with the previous Pure collections in terms of its look and feel, the azure colour is definitely an eye-catcher. “This colour pairs so nicely with food even though blue is not the most obvious colour. I spent a lot of time looking for the perfect hue. This tableware strikes that perfect balance between grey, blue, and purple.” The whole collection can be seen in the book "Real food".
