When Suave started designing the bowls, they began with the smallest of the three, making a transition between a cup and a bowl, with a very subtle base inspired by the delicate curves of porcelain teacups. Made possible by master wood turner Adão Gomes, the three bowls work together as a serving set as well as a sculptural nesting composition.

Origin curates and produces a line of contemporary objects by bringing designers and artisans together. We invite our designers to Portugal once a year to work with local craftsmen and visit ateliers in different towns, sharing a house and meals together. All of our objects are completely or partially handmade. We work with both individual craftsmen as well as small factories to realize our designs in numbered editions.
We publish the names of our makers, not just the names of designers, because we want to do things differently, to remind ourselves that each Origin product is made by a person who could be a father, a mother, a grandfather or a daughter... something we tend to forget in our consumption-driven culture. Our goal is to foster a deeper sense of closeness between the owner of our object, and the people who made it.
Delivery time: Between 1 - 4 weeks, depending on stock and availability.
