Created by Marie Michielssen for Serax using the papier mâché technique. A beautiful statement piece, the Earth Plate has a particular primitive appearance, characterized by simplicity and minimalism.
The unique and traditional character of the Earth collection is reflected in the prints, shapes and colours of these dishes, perfect for every room of your house.
"With the paper mache vases, I feel my visual language shifting ever closer to the sculptural," says Michielssen. The designer does not put anything on paper beforehand. No technical drawings or 3D models on the computer. She would rather let the material speak for itself in the design process.
ABOUT THE DESIGNER
Designer Marie Michielssen has been an established member of the in-house design team at Serax for over 20 years. She has created countless designs inspired by and intended for everyday life. Her designs have a strong focus on functionality, but because she only works with materials that have ‘soul’, this is in no way at the expense of the aesthetic of her work as each and every one of her designs clearly shows. Marie designs two collections a year for Serax.
