Mesh Labs is launching Kosmos, a collection of ceramic tableware, as part of the VDF x Ventura Projects collaboration.
Exhibitor: Mesh Labs
Project title: Kosmos
Mesh Labs is a Rotterdam design studio that aims to "redesign the aesthetics of dining experiences" to reflect the increasing popularity of plant-based diets.
Its most recent project Kosmos, a collection of ceramic tableware with organic and textured forms, is launching as part of VDF x Ventura Projects.
According to the studio, Kosmos is designed to evoke fertile soil and "provide diners with a microcosmic view of the natural ecosystem from which our food is derived". It is hoped to bridge the gap between food culture and nature.
"It is well known that experiencing nature, positively effects human well-being," explained Mesh Labs, "yet many of our modern rituals, eating in this case, is detached to this experience".
Virtual Design Festival is the world's first online design festival, taking place from 15 April to 30 June 2020.
As part of VDF, Ventura Projects is presenting the work of 88 international designers, academies and brands. See work from all the VDF x Ventura Projects participants at dezeen.com/vdf/ventura-projects.
