"label_number": "0901",
"title": "Singlet Collection, 2003",
"description": "Two spoons, a fork, and a knife have a texture that was made from casting knitted textiles. These rich surfaces envelop the part of the object we cradle with our hands and fingers. A cast porcelain cup appears to be softly wrapped in a cozy knit. The visual cue of a perceived textile softens our tactile expectations, beckoning the eye toward a comforting meal. Designed by Verena Schreppel.",
