A TABLEWARE STORY

2017 - Graduation project

 

'' Come with me and you'll be in a world of pure imagination.''
- Roald Dahl, Willy Wonka

 

Marjolijn Senders was inspired by a childhood memory, a fascination of dollhouses and their precious scaled down everyday objects. She created a set of tableware, focusing on the absurd proportions within the world of dollhouses.

By enlarging these intriguing proportional flaws, she tries to pull you out of reality, and creates a world of fantasy and childhood memories.while focusing on upscaling already existing objects, she created a new aesthetic language within the absurd boundaries of a dollhouse.

Each tableware piece is 12 times larger than the normal tableware we use for eating.

Which makes everything bigger and heavier. Details become giant.
