CHUNKY’S THE NEW BLACK...


Piet Hein Eek Collection: Fair Trade Original and Piet Hein work closely together on striking fair trade products, cooperation that has now resulted in two inspiring product ranges: FAT ceramics and vases. The products, alongside Piet Hein Eek’s modern touch, also clearly reveal the craftsmanship, original materials and methods of the producers in Thailand and Vietnam. Piet Hein Eek: “Working with the Thai and Vietnamese craftsman is a great experience. I also like designing products that require a lot of handwork.”


FAT ceramics from Thailand: Thin is in fashion, and that includes the porcelain and ceramics world. The mould makers and potters at Thailand’s Sang Arun ceramics factory respond to this trend by making every effort to produce the thinnest possible cups and plates for the Western market – which is anything but easy. However, Piet Hein Eek has a different idea: ‘Do what you do well – keep them thick.’ He and Sang Arun produced this range of crockery: FAT ceramics, which has a simple, plain design – and is thick.


Ceramics from Vietnam: Working together with potters in Vietnam, Piet Hein Eek designed vases combining a modern shape with traditional

Vietnamese colours and motifs. The glazers have been decorating their ceramics in the same way for centuries. Piet Hein Eek asked them to simply apply the crane, blossom and bamboo motifs a little differently. This immediately makes the decoration both surprisingly graphic and modern at the same time. The vases are available in two sizes: small and medium.
