Reiko Kaneko harnesses his understanding of design and research-backed data to produce a collection of beautiful sculptural ceramics that are intended to intensify the perception of taste and flavor. The exclusive range includes a starter plate, a dish and dessert bowls. The qualitative features of each creation — from the choice and intensity of the color and texture to the outward extension of the shape and the weight, are informed by gastrophysics research conducted by Professor Charles Spence. The result is a line-up of incredibly unique and interesting sculptural ceramics that definitely add a strong artistic component to the way one approaches dishware.
Reiko Kaneko's sculptural ceramics gauge the magnitude of influence dishware can have on human perception, thus, "tricking the brain into experiencing a richer taste sensation." The limited edition collection is designed for Neff and debuted at the Eurocucina 2018.
