Shiro, Motarasu, Stilleben

This fall Motarasu introduced Shiro – a collection of bowls designed by Stilleben. 
Come see the beautiful, bone china bowls in both our stores or check them out online. 

Shiro is a simple collection of six bowls formed of three different shapes. They are designed to contain all kinds of foods and drinks – coffee, juice, large salads, portion served soups and pasta dishes – you can even use one of them as a vase to complete your table setting.

The bowls can be arranged as two sets – one small and one large – but feel free to mix them to match your personal needs.

Shiro 
is the Japanese word for ‘white’ referring to the quiet, clean feeling of the thin, transparent porcelain.
A little indigo blue dot marks each bowl. The dot is inspired by small Japanese stamps often used to sign a product or a paper. The one, two or three dots also indicates the size of the bowl.

The Shiro Bowls are handcrafted, and given the very soft and vibrant material and the high temperature firing each bowl will obtain an individual curve making every piece unique.

The collection has been crafted in Vietnam at a Danish DANIDA supported ceramic factory in a region with more than 1.000 years of tradition with ceramic production.

The Danish brand Motarasu was established in 2018 aiming to bring together Japanese and Danish designers in order to emphasize the common design style and the proud design traditions of both nations. Focusing on simplicity, premium materials and craftsmanship Motarasu was nominated to ‘Upcoming of the Year 2019’ by Bo Bedre, Bolig Magasinet and Costume Living.
