Raw Diamonds by Us from Menu

MENU has introduced a new collaboration with Danish design-comet Design by Us. The result is a set of unique and exotic crockery. The first design in this new line is Raw Diamonds, a set consisting of thermo cup, espresso thermo cup, vase, plate and bowl – cool and truly original crockery for a great breakfast.

For the design Menu has teamed up with Design by Us – a Danish design company with an international reputation for original and outstanding interior design. Architect Rasmus Larsson is the Creative Director and founder of Design by Us, and he describes his inspiration for Raw Diamonds: “We wanted to create a totally new look for a classic set of crockery: vase, cups, platter and bowl – with a design DNA that would not be instantly readable.”

Raw Diamond is made of porcelain of the highest quality, fired at 1320 degrees Celsius, ensuring its strength, durability, and an easy to clean surface. The crockery is made with multiple facets and has a biscuit surface, contrasting the sparkling glaze on the inside. “We have struggled with the uncut element, which is emphasized by the biscuit. The element of surprise is to find the Asian flower motif in strong colors crawling up on the inside,” says Larsson, who has big expectations to Raw Diamonds.
