Utilitarian Wooden Dishware

Las Doce by The Andes House Merges Modern Tech with Tradition

— January 28, 2013 — Art & Design
The Las Doce collection, which means The Twelve in Spanish, is a set of dishware that has been beautifully carved out of wood. At once modern and traditional, the pieces have a sense of history as though they were recently unearthed at an archeological dig. In actuality, they were created by a group of contemporary Chilean designers.

A line of bowls, plates and mugs, the Las Doce collection was created by The Andes House in collaboration with Ecosoluciones and Media Andes. Each made from a single pieces of wood and cut using a CNC machine, the Las Doce collection seamlessly merges advanced technology with classic aesthetics. The pieces range in size and color for an eclectic finish.
