Kopia, Modular Tableware by Istvan Bojte

View all 10 Photos

Kopia is a modular tableware family made in porcelain and cork, inspired by an ancient Hungarian ritual of 18th century: The Kopjafa was a wooden obelisk made not only to celebrate a funeral ceremony but to commemorate the life of a departed person as well, through geometric symbols that used to describe the sex, the character, the profession, the age (etc.) of such person. Only later on, The Kopjafa has become a public object to celebrate a national event, an anniversary or an historical date. From this inspiration Hungarian designer István Böjte who completed his studies in Italy at the Nuova Accademia di Belle Arti di Milano, divided its original shape in symbolic modular blocks easy to assemble and interchangeable. The main purpose has been to reproduce the building ritual of the Kopjafa through the simplified action off composition and to promote the fine Hungarian porcelain tradition.
