Designer Mentze Ottenstein
Crafted with a reactive glaze that gives each piece a unique expression according to where in the kiln it is placed when fired, the stoneware Tryptych Bowl is perfectly sized to hold all manner of objects. It also makes a beautiful addition to spaces as a decorative object in its own right. Tapering to a narrow base, the wide-rimmed design is shaped into three different sizes, each in a different colour. The decorative, speckled surface of the bowl lends a nostalgic feel to an interior, reminiscent of prized find or heirloom object.

ABOUT THE DESIGNER
Mentze Ottenstein is a collaboration between Danish architects and designers Mathias Mentze and Alexander Ottenstein. An architect and design lecturer at The Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts, Mathias Mentze infuses design, history, craft and tactility into projects large and small. Architect Alexander Ottenstein has collaborated with high-profile Danish studios but is most passionate about smaller scale projects. Working across a range of disciplines, from buildings to objects to furniture, their common approach is often contextual. Designs emerge from a specific project or occasion, for a specific place. As a result, their work often contains numerous historical references and unfamiliar narratives that come to light through their extensive research. Mentze Ottenstein have created a range of characterful products for Audo Copenhagen that are both timeless and timely and place great materials at the centre of each design.
