Based in his home workshop, designer Ferréol Babin brings each of his pieces alive by leaving on them the imprint of his hands and his tools. Mass-produced by Revol using the enterrage technique of compressing plaster around the original form, Yli pieces embrace all the marks of the primary material and the way it has been worked on. This goldsmiths’ work is long, slow, patient and painstaking.
- The bowls reflect this free and subtle creative process. The wilful misshaping of the object, the search for balance and the play of light on the raw or glossy surfaces make them into unique objects with a strong identity. While its genius is to offer new perspectives on food, the Yli collection itself takes a step back to allow the ingredients and the chef to fully express themselves.
- Available in three sizes, 10, 30 and 50cl, the bowls answer all needs both at the dining table and when it comes to serving sharing plates.
- Made of porcelain, they can go in the oven, the microwave and the dishwasher.
