Shiro | Porcelain Bowl | Various Sizes

Designed by Stilleben

“We wanted to make a simple, sculptural set of bowls that vary in size and could cover almost any need you may have for a container. Also, we felt a need of getting back to the quiet and clean feeling of the porcelain in order to focus on the shapes, and thereby emphasize the food you serve in them.” Stilleben (designer duo)

SHIRO is a collection of simple and sculptural bowls that are designed to contain all kinds of foods and drinks. Each of the three shapes comes in two sizes – a small and a large. 

Shiro is the Japanese word for white. The little indigo blue dot is inspired by small Japanese stamps often used to sign a product or a paper. The dot also indicates the size of the bowl.

The SHIRO Bowls are handcrafted in thin, transparent porcelain. Given the very soft and vibrant material and the high temperature firing each bowl will obtain an individual curve making every piece unique. The collection is crafted in Vietnam at a Danish DANIDA supported ceramic factory in a region with more than 1.000 years of tradition with ceramic production.
