Foster‘s collection features a selection of stainless steel tableware for evening use, including wine goblets, a carafe, bowls and a tray.
These are joined by coffee cups, a sugar bowl, a thermos flask and a water jug made from porcelain and glass.
While the material differs, the collection is joined together through the use of soft, rounded silhouettes – which Foster describes as “power of the curve”.
“There’s a wonderful ambiguity in the power of a curve, the power of a line, whether it is defining an individual, a building, a bridge, a skyline or a vessel,” said Foster.
“The issues of quality workmanship and textures are common to all these different scales,” he continued. “The translation of a design idea through prototyping and production, and the quality of those finishes is vital – whether that is a mass manufactured product or a handcrafted object.”
For the evening collection, Foster chose to present the products in contrasting tones of mirrored stainless steel and copper.
The wine glasses, for instance, have a stainless steel exterior with a copper-tinged inner surface that makes it appear as if it has a golden hue.
Additionally, the tray also has a mirrored silver surface with a copper bottom, and its structure slopes upwards in one fluid form.
The bowl follows a similar format, except it has a raised shape with an asymmetrical, wide rim.
The porcelain range features a similar, curved form in a white colour.
