Porcelain offers a multiplicity of uses. Surprising by its abrasion resistance, waterproofness and excellent thermal insulation, it may advantageously replace the metal blade.
The range Lithos is thought by the duo designers Elèment Common, Vincent Blouin and Julien Legras, who’s approach is centered on the use and understanding of our everyday objects, Non Sans Raison revisits the field of cutlery while giving new life to the porcelain.
It is a return to origins that the range Lithos operates seeking to introduce a clean aesthetic to ceramics when used for cutting, separating and shaping. Each piece, is designed by the illusion of a successive removal of material where each operation that draws the blade, also shapes the whole object, reminding the use of stone. Their uniqueness holds the meeting of gross and massive, close to the archaism of Silex, and to a material, smooth, minimalist, the porcelain.
