We know that a bowl does not need to be round to serve its function, so why don't more designers have a bit of fun with sculptural dinner services? The Speech Dish Set comprises what you might be inclined to call plates and bowls, taking various sizes and dimensions with generally shallow depths.

Each of the pieces has a flat base with a high edge that helps to define its iconic shape. Different rectangles and squares make up the collection yet they each have one consistent feature in common: a pointed protrusion. This simple defect to the otherwise simple geometric forms makes the items instantly recognizable as references to speech bubbles. Alan Ng's Speech Dish Set maintains this casual and playful quality about it without sacrificing mealtime utility. Stats for Conversational Kitchen Crockery Trending: Older & Chilly
