DWR Exclusive In 1926, the Kispester-Granit factory in Budapest hired Eva Zeisel, who was 20 years old at the time, as a designer. It was only her first job, but the company was so impressed with her initial work that they created a special art department for her. The employees, who normally produced ceramic sinks, all wanted to work with Zeisel as she brought elegant vases, whimsical rhinoceros-shaped ashtrays and beautiful teapots into the product mix. The factory closed her department after just one year, but the experience sparked a brilliant career. Almost 60 years later, Zeisel returned to the factory and designed the Granit Collection (1983). Though widely exhibited, the set – which features her signature fluid, sensuous curves – wasnt put into production until 2009. DWR worked closely with Zeisel to ensure that Granit adheres to her exacting standards. I like the way the very thin, hard edges of the plates change into a soft, inviting bellybutton, she said. All the pieces together make a very nice family. The plates and bowls each feature a dimple in the center, and their matte white finish offers a neutral backdrop for culinary delights. This collection is food, microwave and dishwasher safe. Made in China. Materials: Stoneware. Measurements:H 8.25" W 5.5" D 8" (Capacity: approx. 36 oz.)

Spanish designer Jaime Hayon immersed himself as a teenager in both skateboard culture and graffiti art, which lie at the core of the bold and whimsical forms that he creates today. In 1997, after studying industrial design in Madrid and Paris, he joined Fabrica, a research center in Treviso, Italy, where he soon became the head of design. Hayon struck out on his own in 2003, first devising collections of ceramics and furniture, then delving into interior design. His work is featured in several museums and has received accolades from the likes of Time and Wallpaper. Réaction Poétique commemorates the 50-year anniversary of Le Corbusiers death, inspired by the organic shapes of his architecture and LEsprit Nouveau artwork. I wanted to create useful objects for the modern home such as trays and side tables, but with sculptural elements interplaying forms, light and shadow, says Hayon.

Design Within Reach Krenit Bowl Design Within Reach Krenit Bowl

I am excited about shapes and structures, said Danish designer Herbert Krenchel. The surface on a design object is important, because it makes people want to reach out for it. His hand-finished Krenit Bowl (1950s), with a bold-colored interior that pops against a matte black exterior, serves as an inviting vessel for all sorts of items. Its utility and form are purposeful: I also believe that there has to be a balance between function and aesthetics, continued Krenchel. A good design must therefore contain more than one aspect to make the perfect overall impression. Krenchels now-iconic Krenit (a combination of his name and Eternit, the name of a fiber cement he used in his work) was the recipient of the gold medal at the 1954 Milan Triennial . Introduced in the early 50s, the bowl was produced until 1966 and reintroduced by Normann Copenhagen in 2008. The Danish design company has stayed true to Krenchels specifications, finishing each piece by hand, but has updated the interior material from hard-to-maintain enamel to durable and lightweight melamine. The food-safe Krenit maintains its steel exterior – it was conceptualized before the advent of microwaves, after all – so be sure not to nuke it. Not dishwasher safe or for use with steel utensils. Clean by hand with warm water, then wipe thoroughly. We recommend oiling the edges regularly to prevent rust. Made in Denmark. Materials: Steel; melamine.

Featuring containers in numerous shapes and sizes, metal hooks and clips, Dorothee Becker's Uten.Silo (1969/1970) is perfect for organizing offices, kitchens, workshops, bathrooms and children's rooms. The German designer set out to create a practical and versatile storage solution – inspired by a multi-pocketed fabric storage system from her father's workshop – that was easy to mass produce in durable plastic. With financial backing from her husband, designer Ingo Mauer, Becker presented the Uten.Silo prototype at the Frankfurt Fair in 1969, and her design was a huge success. Unfortunately because of the oil embargo in the mid-1970s, plastics became too costly to produce, and Uten.Silo fell out of production. That is until 2002, when the Vitra Design Museum reissued both the original 1969 version of Uten.Silo and a smaller one dating from 1970. Made in Germany. Materials: ABS plastic; nickel-plated hooks.
