The 11 types of designs series of Ingegerd Råman, leading designer of Sweden.
Thinking that the source of design lies in everyday life, her design first considers “what do I want to use and what is easy to use?” It will be even better if it will be useful to other people. Things that were used will consider as completed successfully.
The existence of “water” that is essential for people
What is especially important to Ingegerd Råman is “water”. She said that drinking water is a “gift”. One of the keywords for the design of this series is to reflect water, the most important and essential figure for human beings on the dining table.
Extra decoration is not necessary
For very simple and pure designs, there will be a shadow of the glass and water that falls on the surface which was created by the condensation floats on the surface. With this, no extra decoration is needed for the design.
Design for the appearance
For example, how carafe will look when it was poured into water and how it will also look charming with the less water. Every drop till the last drop is important to look beautiful. The Set series looks beautiful and looks like a lotus when stacked.
