Enamel Collection POLKAPOTS| Riess

Enamel pots, 2006

Riess, Austria

The idea of the standard household cooking pot has been changed, modified and mutated. The various elements of these well-known objects of daily life have been rearranged. The result is a collection of creatures, which force you to reconsider your everyday routines and ways of doing things.

The limited edition POLKAPOTS project is a collaboration with RIESS, a centuries-old Austrian enamel company. The company is well-known for the pastel colour scheme of their objects, with which many Austrians grew up. The uniform black of the POLKAPOTS collection is a deliberate counterpart to this heritage, appearing as they do like distant relative, the black sheep in the product family.
