This set of dishware by French designer Ariane Prin contains artistic impressions in which dips, dressings, and other condiments could be placed.

From the designer:

Observe that there are two distinct categories of items: first the simple objects from mass production, and on the other hand the ornamental objects, carved, which show the evidence of an ancestral knowledge.

How to reconcile these families of objects while playing with this duality?

By taking styles and periods from different origins, I zoomed in ornaments on objects to extract them from their context and apply them to simple forms. The ornament is therefore subject to a replay, a reinterpretation of the past.

These inlaid ornaments disturb, inspire, decorate but also and above all offer new uses. The ornament is working for example as a grip or as a container inside the container.
