Sebastian Bergne has designed a range of children’s crockery and cutlery for Habitat. Made of melamine plastic, Clown is a dual-tone set available in white and either dark pink or teal. Each piece from the set, which incorporates a plate, cup, knife, fork and spoon, features subtle ‘humanoid’ characteristics such as the suggestion of a nose, ears and feet. ‘I wanted to introduce human elements that children could discover gradually, rather than making them crass and jokey and [immediately] obvious,’ Bergne says. The range will be available in Habitat stores from February.
