Vij5 has released the second product in their 10-week campaign of launching one new product every week (see week one here) and it’s by Eindhoven-based ceramics artist Lotte de Raadt. The Archiving Water Wareearthenware collection features a self-developed glazing technique that resembles water beading up on a flat surface.
The ceramic pieces, which include a carafe, cups, bowls, and a serving dish, are fairly simple in shape with each being finished with the raised texture where one would be inclined to touch it by hand. It adds a tactile surface that makes it easy to grip while feeling enjoyable to touch.
Archiving Water Ware aims to remind us of the beauty of water while being more conscious of one of our most important resources. The collection is available for purchase here.

Launched just recently by Moroso, Arco is a series of outdoor chairs and tables, designed by Martino Gamper, with exaggerated curves that highlight the colorful surfaces. The collection features contrasting colors of woven threads held in tension on iron frames. Each section stands out separately as a different color of thread was chosen for each one to emphasize the piece’s curvy silhouettes.
The Arco collection includes a hanging chair, chairs with optional sunshades, and occasional tables.
