FrontRunners: Pour Shape

<< Back to Robb Report, January 2013

    The designs for the Prouna Geometrica tableware collection (www.prounausa.com) are based on simple shapes. The Italian designer and architect Alessandro Mendini collaborated with Prouna, a Santa Clara, Calif.–based company, on the line. He describes the collection’s circular handle designs as "a playful succession of small geometrical forms." rel="nofollow" Made from English fine bone china and priced from $88 to $398, the collection includes a teapot, a sugar-and-creamer set, and teacups and saucers available in all white, all gold, or white with 24-karat-gold or platinum accents.
