One of the oldest artefacts in the history of mankind is the bowl. Used today as they always have – as containers for food. Historically, the material tells the story of the development of the civilisation. Today, the material tells the story of its intended use. As a functional object the bowl has always belonged to all cultures, all around the world.

When apart each has its own shape, size and material – suggesting its use. Put together they form a unified set.
