Dóra Szilágyi - Cream puff - dessert plate
ONYX Műhely x MOME I ‘Gerbeaud legacy’ project
The project is a collaboration between the MOME Object Design programme and ONYX Műhely. The goal of ONYX Műhely is to present a progressive Hungarian cuisine offering a fusion of art, science and gastronomy. The design course for ceramic design students of the MOME Object Design programme was led by Art Director of the ONYX Műhely’s Creative Community Angéla Góg DLA, and ceramist and MOME teacher Edit Kondor. Assisted by the Műhely's creative pastry chef Zsuzsanna Borsos, students were tasked with designing dessert serving items for ONYX Műhely by exploring contemporary dessert culture and the related serving techniques and drawing on Gerbeaud's legacy.
In designing the dessert plate, I sought to further emphasise the cylindrical shape of the cake. The small plate works as a functional supporting element and is complemented by a base that evokes the shape of the Paris-Brest pastry with a hole in the centre.
The porcelain serving dishes are inspired by Gerbeaud's signature cream puff, in which the texture and colour of the Tokaji furmint grape jelly and the spiced pear harmonises with the greenish hue of the ash glaze on the ceramic dessert plate. Photo: Rebeka Szomor
