HYBRID - Handcrafted dinnerware by CTRLZAK for SELETTI

This dinnerware project designed by CtrlZak multidisciplinary collective for italian brand Seletti reflects on the historical production of Chinese and European Bone China and its centuries of fertilisation between Western and Eastern aesthetics. Produced in Tangshan, the renowned “capital of Bone China”,refined by hand, the pieces decorations are sliced in half, creating new hybrids that juxtapose scenes and themes interpretated in the respective cultural imaginary. Bone china is a type of porcelain that is composed of bone ash, feldspathic material and kaolin. Developed by English potter Thomas Frye at the end of the XVIII century, Bone China is known for its high levels of whiteness and translucency, and very high mechanical strength and chip resistance. Contemporary forms to symbolize a complex past, when east meets west.
