Dutch Design #3: Forgotten Memory

Home decor is often made for touch – we want to feel the design & sense the products origins. Design graduate Jetske Visser playfully ponders on this thought and created a product whose origin has been forgotten and therefor can’t exist for what we think it is made for. Jetske on her project:

“I wonder how daily things look like with the view of a demented person. How do they experience their environment? What is a teapot if you don’t know what a teapot is?”

Inspired by the notion of a lack or loss of reference Jetske made a 120 piece set of tea pots & cups from wax. Fragile, almost ghostlike looking home ware that transforms into a little melted heap of pink when used, according to our cultural reference.
