Personal style transcends far beyond one’s dress sense or home interior-design preferences; it often trickles as far down as the choice of one’s dinnerware. Plates, bowls, cups and saucers — these are a direct reflection of one’s lifestyle, giving a window into one’s way of dining. As chefs the world over know, the importance of presentation is essential to a successful dinner; the power of tableware lies within its capacity to enhance the dining experience without taking the spotlight away from the dishes. All in all, tableware undoubtedly enriches the total food experience.
Keeping this in mind, Belgian brand CHIC creates distinctive, timelessly designed tableware that incorporates unique material features. Currently, the tableware industry strongly focuses on aesthetics, while the user-friendliness of items is often overlooked. To counteract this, CHIC aims to produce tableware that is easy to use, durable and looks the part.
CHIC’s various product lines are developed with the vision of combining elegant design with innovative materials, which, in turn, also meet the user’s requirements. With CHIC’s novel tableware, chefs and home cooks alike can present food in a way that satisfies their wants and needs.
CHIC’s newest range, Nobile, is a classy porcelain tableware range designed for sophisticated settings. The subtle metallic detailing adds an eye-catching element to the tablescape and creates a perfect canvas for attention-grabbing presentations. Complete with a charming black base featuring auric-coloured decorative accents resembling gold flakes, the Nobile range delivers an unforgettable look for any special occasion. It’s the kind of tableware that instantly transforms any eating experience into a fine-dining affair.
Celest is ideal for those in search of a refined yet organic look. Available in two colours, bronze and white, this high-quality porcelain tableware is graceful and elegant but with a reactive glaze finish that really pops. What’s special about this glaze is that it imbues each item with varying colour nuances, generating a playful visual experience. The imperfect shape gives each piece of tableware an authentic, handmade look, and paired either with the same or a different colour variation, it creates a standout appearance for any table setting.
The items from the Floret collection radiate with rustic charm, and paired with the subtle relief of a flower, it’s the idyllic choice for a one of-a-kind tabletop aesthetic. Exuding romance and elegance, this porcelain dinnerware set is available in both matte white and bronze, and all items are finished with a reactive glaze. This subtle differentiation in colour means that each piece is a standalone work of art, forming the most beautiful backdrop for delicious delicacies.
The Facet collection is CHIC’s answer to the importance of fusing form with functionality. Brimming with tactile characteristics, these ageless pieces offer an extra dimension of intrigue. The geometric-shaped relief catches the light and creates an exciting play with shadows, causing stunning effects that will highlight each dish served. These sensuous, playful elements guide the table’s atmosphere without completely taking over. Like CHIC’s Perla, Classico and Verso collections, this highly versatile collection is also made from the SiloxiHT formula, which allows the item to be thinner, more durable, lighter in weight and more translucent than any other porcelain product. The stunning shiny, off-white glaze adds a final touch of finesse to the collection.
