The fruit of that idea is ‘Surface’. A range that comprises almost everything useful for the table including stoneware, glasses, cutlery, place mats, cutting boards, knives, salt and pepper grinders - even specially sourced and bottled virgin olive oil and vinegars.
There is something very special about ‘Surface’. It is rare indeed that a design concept is realized so fully that it does, in actuality, produce the complete experience to which the designer originally aspired. But there is no doubt that the Surface range achieves just that.
For example, at very first sight, the stoneware dishes, plates, bowls, cups and mugs, transport you to the open spaces of Zeeland which inspired the range: the light-washed sands and skies of the seascapes, muted, complex colours of a lush and intimate landscape.
It is easy enough to test the truth of that claim. Just visit the Serax/Herman collection online. Browse through the images there and let them speak for themselves!
