The bold and colourful dishes created by the British-Israeli chef Yotam Ottolenghi have just been granted tableware worthy of their joyousness. ‘Feast’ is a brilliantly construed collection of plates, bowls, cups, glasses, cutlery and serving stands in collaboration with the Italian artist Ivo Bisignano and the Belgian design label Serax.

The collection spans 100 singular pieces and is a playful expression of Ottolenghi’s tastes and passions; intended to represent the pleasures of communal dining, celebrations of food, family and friendship. It is the continuation of the chef’s longstanding relationship with Bisignano, who has, for many years, been responsible for Ottolenghi’s creative graphics. He is an artist and fashion archaeologist, as well as a former art director for Vogue. He has designed for luxury labels including Chanel and Prada, and exhibited across his native Italy, with displays at the Vocabolario della Moda exhibition in Triennale Milan 2015.

The collection encompasses bright, contrasting colours that are decorated with erratic brush-stroked ‘O’ shapes and the abstract outlines of vegetables – the food group most championed by the chef.
