Today I’m mostly dreaming of hotter climes (nothing new there then) and admiring the Mediterranean-inspired range of diningware from German design company ASA. Its ethos is that nothing brings people together like a nicely set table. Indeed. Make sure there’s a nice bottle or two of rose mixed in and they won’t move for hours either (that’s my ethos). ASA’s pieces certainly are simple and stylish, suitable for everyday use, providing all the necessaries for an afternoon of relaxed entertaining…

Below: Beautiful design ensures this tomato bowl is a piece you’ll want to covet…
Below: The Manuale collection from home by ASA is equally beautiful and features all the essentials for baking and food preparation. Finished in light grey and blue, the range is described by ASA as ‘strong, functional and archaic in shape in colour.’ All pieces of tableware in this stoneware collection were made by hand, with spouts manually shaped with wet clay. To create the stylish surface, which preserves the beauty of the potter’s wheel grooves, a colour glaze covers the fine stoneware shards underneath to create a transparent coating. Nice.
You can find the ASA collection available at ACHICA until Thursday 1st September 2011.
