A distinct and decorative piece.
This is the first collaboration between Menu and the Hamburg-based designer Alexa Lixfeld. Her studio engages in designing extraordinary items and in her own words, they strive to "build an economy of the special." Circular Bowl is a great example of her work and how she manages to turn something as simple as a bowl into something quite spectacular. Use it for egg-smashing, dough-making, spectacular salads, pretty fruits, still life displays or just as it is – a distinct and decorative piece.
After a ten-year career as a model, Alexa Lixfeld switched to design, studying in Germany and at the Design Academy in Eindhoven, Netherlands. Now based in Hamburg, her design company boasts a kaleidoscopic portfolio, ranging from concrete and porcelain tableware to cashmere and a fragrance collection.
Alexa is committed to keeping alive craft techniques in communities around the world, collaborating with artisans in Sri Lanka, Japan, Czech Republic, Vietnam, Nepal and China. “My work is essentially about bringing together what is already there, but which remained disconnected. I’m less a product designer than a process designer, a facilitator, someone who makes things possible.”
