The Coffee Break by Amidov for Monkey Business

A coffee cup shaped sugar bowl divided into two, convenient for serving different sweeteners and for raising a smile. Made of ceramic. “The Coffee Breaks birth as a product lies at the end of a relatively unconventional design journey. From 2011 onward we produced a series of studio works, consisting of sectioned ceramic table ware such as tea pots, coffee cups, plates and vases. Ceramic vessels were sourced from the local flea market and with the aid of a gem-cutters saw, the vessels sides were cut away leaving only the center most portion of the vessel. The outcome had an almost two-dimensional existence, free of volume, devoid of the ability to contain, they were almost a graphic representation of themselves. These works were shown at several galleries and museums as a kind of ‘designers studies’.”
