The work seven fictive dining ceremonies was particularly made for this exhibition in Milano. Fitted for the theme Luxury and the title of the exhibition Slow City Maastricht I developed the 7-piece place setting from existing cutlery in combination with the self-created parts. The design of the cutlery has the old typical shape of the silverware of Maastricht, which is also equipped with the city brand, the star of Maastricht. Back then the cutlery was a valuable and individually decorated possession, which often functioned as a showpiece and conversational piece. Surprisingly, knife and fork where not meant to be utensils for eating. Neither is my cutlery. Instead it gives seven different answers on what to do with it when you don’t use it for eating. The observer is encouraged to find new appliances to refine his mind and the fine sense for design, dreaming and fantasy.
