Kitchen Simplicity from a Swiss Atelier
Average Rating: ( 0 votes)
Recently discovered via Etsy: Golden Biscotti is a small shop offering daily goods of elemental charm. Designed by Nicole Lehner , each product is manufactured by hand using traditional techniques that enhance the natural beauty of the materials—paper, wood, and clay. Simplicity reigns at this Swiss atelier; ornamentation is sacrificed in favor of balance and form, and texture, rather than color, provides allure. Above: Sold individually or as a set in three shades of gray, Golden Biscotti's porcelain plates are left unglazed in order to maintain their textured finish; $59 each or $170 for the set. Above: Drinking straws made of... straw! Harvested with a sickle just before ripening, each piece is then dried and cut to the desired length. An ecological alternative to plastic, Golden Biscotti's straws are compostable; $9.60 for a set of 20. Above: Like Golden Biscotti's plates, their hand-folded paper garlands come in a trio of subtle gray shades: $24 for a set of three. Above: Carved from maple and walnut, Golden Biscotti's tree boards are both decorative and utilitarian; $32 for maple , $38 for walnut. Also available in beech ($38) and as a set of three ; $111. Above: Designed in collaboration with fashion designer Cornelia Peter, this natural pan mat is hand-crocheted from durable hemp; $59. You can view the full range of Golden Biscotti products here .
