À la table – It all begins with plates, glasses or bowles covered in felt and then restrained by a cord. Then, off to the oven and back to the workshop again. This time free from cords and marked by the traces. The Succession Ceramics tableware collection by French-Swedish design duo Färg & Blanche for Petite Friture comes with “an organic form that gives the impression of unity” say the designers to ArchiPanic.

The series was developed in partnership with REVOL. “For this occasion, the artisans of the French ceramic brand returned to the original moulding techniques in order to respect and to respond to the needs of the contemporary design.” Comment Fredrik Färg and Emma Marga Blanche.
The new collection features a complete dining set in black or white. “Porcelain is a non-porous and waterproof material that we used in a contrasting way: raw and matt on the exterior, shiny enamel on the interior” say the designers. Due to the high heat and thermal shock resistance, the pieces can be used in the oven and microwave as well as in the dishwasher.
The collection is a continuation of the Succession furniture series including stools, mirrors and cupboards made in leather, textiles, wood and even staples. The key concept of the designs focuses on the “process of making”, a succession of actions and different materials that lead to an organic-looking product.
Färg & Blanche handmade the felt shapes in their studio in Stockholm, then REVOL artisans casted the pieces in France to make the final shape.
