It’s not just independent restaurants that understand the right tableware can improve the dining experience. Zizzi have over 120 outlets across the UK and want to ensure their customers are consistently happy with every element of their service.
I was approached to design a new olive bowl as part of a drive to attract a more youthful customer base without alienating their regulars. Using bright glazes and angular forms juxtaposed with earthy clay tones to reflect their values of wholesomeness and local sourcing, I produced this standout bowl that was rolled out across all Zizzi restaurants in 2011.
All the master models and mock-ups were created in my studio but because of the large nature of the project, I worked hard to find a factory I could trust to perfectly reproduce my design at a competitive price. And with over 7000 bowls produced so far, this is now my biggest selling item.
