The 1:4 bowls were one of eleven products produced by different designers in response to photographs of a fictional character named Vera, which Dezeen featured in a story earlier this week.

Called Vera, Chapter One, the project was curated by Kirsty Minns and Érika Muller (KM and ÉM) and was presented in a west London basement during the London Design Festival.

Precise measurements were necessary to produce each bowl's concrete components, similar to the regular cake-baking that Vera's mother is imagined to have done.

Each day, for 30 days, a different designer will use a one metre by one metre space to exhibit their work at Dezeen Space. See the full lineup for Dezeen Platform here and see all our stories about the work on show here.

    finally some concrete bowls. this is amazing.
    and If you brake it is not even a problem. you just put the pieces together on the table.
    it must be really elegant when the garcon takes the bowls with hanging noodles and red sauce droping in every hols.
    I think this is great. reminds me of jaques tati

    @mik HAHAHAHA ! ( : Exactly my thought. However they do make a nice fruit bowl.

  • Very nice. Anything in concrete!

  • In an age where objects have become so disposable and last year’s products are often characterized as obsolete, it’s rare to find someone like Philippe Malouin who still firmly believes in the permanence of an object.

  • beatiful. clever. wish I'd thought of it first!

  • look who's back :
    But Malouin is talking about color and dimension here. Nice step!
