“Since mankind eats from plates, they decorated them. On these plates and cups you will find some animals that can not be eaten, because they are not real. The drawings tell you in an enigmatic way how difficult the relation in between animals and man has become. Enjoy your meal.” – Martin Fengel
“Embraces play a big role in the selected illustrations. Do you see a connection between closeness and food?”
“Eating is something special for me. We cannot do without it. I love to go out eating. By the way, Stefan is a great cook… It´s ok to eat alone, but is there anything nicer than having lunch or dinner with a person you love? Well, maybe there is something you could do after eating.” – Martin Fengel
Fengel x SHIRO for Schönwald is the new special edition, result of the collaboration with the artist Martin Fengel. Martin selected some items of the SHIRO porcelain collection and decorated them with his illustration. the original collection was instead the outcome of another collaboration, realised in 2019 between DIEZ OFFICE and the Los Angeles based architect, Andrea Lenardin, for the german porcelain manufacturer Schönwald.
