Architect-Designed Ceramics Are as Elegant as You'd Imagine

British architect David Chipperfield is perhaps best known, at least in recent years, for his work on the gorgeous Museo Jumex in Mexico City, the ethereal private houses he has designed the world over, and a spate of residential, retail, and commercial projects in New York City. The Renaissance Man is also an accomplished product designer. Now, Chipperfield has unveiled additional pieces in his "Tonale" line of bowls, plates, and cups for Italian haute housewares company Alessi, just in time for Paris's Maison et Objet home goods fair, which kicks off this Friday, January 22. The expanded line now includes elegantly tapered vases and chic serveware in a host of pastel shades inspired by Italian artist Giorgio Morandi and ancient Korean stoneware, Dezeen reports. We'll have a full report on the happs at Maison after the show ends, but, until then, feast your eyes on this.
