The tables at the NM& restaurant at Nationalmuseum in Stockholm are topped with Sand dinnerware, designed by Carina Seth Andersson in collaboration with Design House Stockholm. The dinner set is made from high-fired stoneware in a soft sandy shade and left bare, allowing the food served on it to become the decoration.
The matt structure exploits the play of light on the surfaces and the stoneware is fully or semi-glazed with a transparent glaze. The shapes and finishes are soft and each piece can be used in several ways - the cup without a handle could just as well be a bowl. “It’s a bit mismatched, but it still fits, it doesn’t all have to look exactly the same to work together. The forms are what binds the dinnerware together, and there is something very Scandinavian about that,” says Carina.
