She communicates her experiences about the above in her blog. She also makes all the pictures of her designs.


“Design is my being. It is the material translation of my personality. The shape I create is an extension of my body, where a part of my soul lives. To design is filling a void by means of sleek, pure lines and shapes, often inspired by nature and graphic design.”

PRESENTATIE © ILONA VAN DEN BERGH

The preferred material used by Ilona is clay. In spite of the fact that it is a willful material to work with, it is also pure and natural. Therefore, she chooses to present her creations raw or rather nude, to reveal their soul, without glaze or decoration, which are only leading the attention away from the shape and which would (and can) turn them into tableware. Casting is the major technique used. This results in repetitive production and small scale installations. Presented in an installation, the objects evoke an organic and dynamic feeling. They breathe an atmosphere of serenity. Where shadow and light bring the collection to life. Where lines and shapes conduct the rhythm. Where purity and simplicity rule. ‘Dare la luce’ (giving birth, giving light), is her goal. Touching people by the purity and soberness of her designs. Creating something that is beautiful to the mind and eye and that can be funcional at the same time.   ©ilona van den bergh

description To have a complete set of tableware in her collection, ilona created a set of 21 pieces, that is especially suited for the horeca. In the search for the perfect design of a plate the character ‘A’ of the font Bauhaus came up. The inspiration was found in graphic design, typography and architecture: knowing that Bauhaus is also the designers most favorite style in architecture, with pure, strong and sleek lines. Starting from the plates of the tableware collection BON, 21 new pieces were created. From A to O and also some elongated shapes, the designers favorite, they make a strong and perfect combination with lots of possibilities for as well the professional cook as any cooking enthusiast.

While designing the tableware collection ONA, the desire grew to work also with materials other than clay. Thus arose a little furniture collection: a tripod stool / side table and a six-legged bench. To combine in a playful way.
