The tableware began with the idea of equipping the refectory of the Abbey of Nový Dvůr in Bohemia with a set of implements and vessels appropriate to the functional and aesthetic needs of the monastic community. The designs reflect a commitment to the discipline of paring away until what is left cannot be improved by further subtraction — ‘I seek the comfort of exactness, an absolute precision of scale and proportion’. Knife, fork and spoon are united by a single handle profile and each demonstrates the potential for lyricism
in restraint.
