The new normal by Studio Boir

The New Normal collection explores the impact of the coronavirus pandemic on traditional dining rituals and the future that brings many restrictions to prevent the spread of the infection. With its collection, studio Boir considers how to achieve balance between intimacy and safe distance within the context of the “new normal”. The steel and stone tableware is designed in response to plexiglass barriers that prevent any attempt of food sharing between two people.

Despite coronavirus safety rules, the conceptual tableware retains that important social and cultural dimension of dining – sharing. Minimalist, geometrically shaped steel forms ensure sterile and safe food serving, while unique pieces handcrafted from natural stone fragments soften the stern impression.
