Fine feat of design – the ramabowl

Dara Huang Bowl 01

Bowl over your guests by setting one of these porcelain beauties down at the dinner table. The bowl, each one hand-made and brushed with paint containing very fine particles of crushed 24 carat gold to give it an iridescent effect, is modelled on the original, which was created for a luxury restaurant in Japan. And the logic behind the striking geometric shape of the bowl? To ensure each person receives the same amount – the star shape at the bottom marks the pouring line and this is revealed only after you have finished the serving.

The ramabowl costs £65.
