These 3″ x 4″ polymer bowls from France’s Sonya Girodon are loaded with rough texture, dark color and curious details. They wobble and fold over and let the light in. They beg to be examined.
Even their names, Give some, take some (left) and ForNever (right) make you stop and look again.
Sonya says that her bowl experiments were prompted by Melanie Muir’s recent series in the London Design Fair. Perhaps the hunter-gather impulse still stirs us in the fall.
