Milan 2014: British designer Bethan Gray will exhibit a set of monochrome marble tableware in Milan next month.

The Alice collection by Welsh designer Bethan Gray comprises geometric combinations of black and white marble, which reference stripes and chequerboard patterns used in historic architectural designs, observed during the designer's trips across Europe and the Arab states.

"The idea for the geometric patterns of the Alice tableware range came from the pattern, form and use of light found in Arabic design and the spectacular black and white stone configurations I'd seen on various trips across Europe," said the designer.

"These specifically include the ninth-century Amalfi Cathedral in Italy and the twentieth-century San Giovanni Battista in Mogno, Switzerland."

    The square one looks like Andrée Putman’s personal weighing scale.

      In all fairness, the perception comes from presentation. If these were photographed with table settings, giving us a sense of scale and usage, there wouldn’t be any confusion.
