GASTRO Black Oval Plate medium
Material: stoneware

This black stoneware plate has a round, organic shape. Distinctive because of its black matte glaze which contrasts beautifully with the matte unglazed bottom in a grey-brown colour. The black Gastro service has an exclusive character, precisely because it is not a classic service colour. Black makes the food pop out as can be seen perfectly on this picture made at Bistrobar Bankoh.

This bowl is part of the Gastro tableware collection, developed in close collaboration with master chef Ron Blaauw. The collection is available internationally for both consumers and professional clients.

The material is stoneware, in terms of strength this material sits between porcelain and earthenware. Only the top surface of the plate is glazed, this gives it its distinct aesthetic; it also makes the bottom a bit more sensitive to chipping and scratching compared to completely glazed items.
The service is dishwasher and microwave safe. It is used at a wide range of establishments: from gastro pub to Michelin star restaurant.

Tableware only really gets its value through its use. My designs are used in restaurants and homes internationally, that's what I love about being a tableware designer.

In my role as a designer, I work with tableware companies and design brands that are on the lookout for innovation and style in their products. My work is like a blank canvas, it interacts with the user and the chef, who is challenged to new forms of presentation and application.
My studio was established in 2009 following completion of my studies at the Design Academy Eindhoven and is located in Delfshaven in Rotterdam.
