Hybrid Collection by CTRLZAK studio for Seletti

Art and design studio CTRLZAK have launched a collection of tableware where half of each piece resembles traditional Chinese porcelain and the other side features a European design.

Based on an earlier collection of one-off pieces, the new commercial range for Italian brand Seletti is intended to highlight the mixing of aesthetics between Western and Eastern production.

Unlike the earlier CermamiX range, the plates, bowls and cups in the new Hybrid collection are cast as single objects in bone china.

The two halves of each object are then decorated with different colours and motifs.

A line of tableware reflecting on the historical production of Chinese and European porcelain and its’ centuries of cross-fertilisation between Western and Eastern aesthetics.

The pieces in the collection are graphically divided between east and west with a coloured line marking the boundary between the two styles and, paradoxically, strengthening at the same time the union.

The Hybrid collection looks at the present while reflecting on the irony of history proposing consequently an evocative contemporary interpretation.

    The collection is launching this month in London at the new retail trade show HOME http://home-london.net/

    Lovely but at the risk of nitpicking, the designs are slightly spoiled by the line running between the two sides, in my opinion.

    What is meant by "resembling" – these are not designed to resemble anything. They are actual dishes cut in half and then melded together. Look at the edges and rims of the plates and cups.
