A modern look at tradition.

According to Mold magazine, the future of food goes hand in hand with design and innovation. For its first edition and the “Culturing Yogurt” feature, the magazine commissioned a range of design studios to create objects that provide a modern interpretation of local traditions. Designed by Greece is for Lovers, Holy Yogurt is creative and also takes inspiration from a special Greek structure. The sapele wooden jar boasts an eye-catching top section with undulating shapes that give the design its distinctively modern aesthetic. At the same time, the top anchors the vessel in local tradition by referencing the corrugated roofs of the Holy Monastery of St. John the Forerunner in Anatoli, Thessaly, Greece.

Produced by New York City-based studio Nodus, Holy Yogurt brings together two different materials. The sapele wood features organic lines, while the 3D printed brass spoon boast a matte surface and muted golden hue. Finished and waxed by hand, the items have the unmistakable charm of an artisanal object. Apart from being included in the magazine’s first issue, the bespoke designs also appeared at the New York Design Week. Holy Yogurt joined other objects that celebrate tradition via contemporary design, created by studios from Jordan, Kenya, New York, and Russia. Photographs© Daniel Terna.
