Always fertile ground for invention, we look forward each year to seeing what our designers of the future might do to our everyday kitchen tools and table accessories. A graduate of the masters course in ceramic design at Budapest’s Moholy-Nagy University of Art and Design, Lili Almássy has designed an inspired set of terracotta kitchen pots, called ‘Portion’, which feature multi-functioning vessels and lids that will squeeze you a lemon, drizzle honey, hold an egg and keep tea warm.

To find the perfect building blocks of a kitchen bar breakfast, we delved into the graduate design pot and uncovered a brush to sweep up crumbs from ÉCAL graduate Hyunjee Jung, a glass designed as part of a table setting for enjoying fermented foods and drinks by Laura Görs of Weißensee Kunsthochschule Berlin, and a snug water pourer, with two spout sizes, for keeping herbs hydrated, by Anna Csenge Berkes, also of Moholy-Nagy.
