Rare, unusual cutlery that has to be made by hand – which forms part of its exclusiveness. Designed by an architect, for whom the linking of aesthetics with outstanding functionality is especially important; and who’s concerned day-to-day with questions of material properties, the laws of proportion, surfaces, rhythm, distance and nearness on a larger scale: this characterises her field of work.
The process of designing and, occasionally even rejecting, the prototypes until the MoonLashes achieved the level of perfection satisfying for Vera lasted 7 years. The series finally went into production and today can be found in the World's most exclusive houses. Only rarely will you get them in front of you, on your table and in your hands. MoonLashes are one the "hidden champions" of this world.
The bowl of the spoon leaning slightly out of the angle; like the portraits by Modigliani. The butter spreader stirring associations with Henry Moore's strong and simple design. In general, the unfamiliar dimensions of MoonLashes go beyond the usual. Hans Haas, the chef at the famous Tantris restaurant in Munich, says that with them "all people eat more elegant, including children".
Vera developed her cutlery so that each piece fits comfortably in the hand and is perfectly balanced! This is her tribute to the meal and the mastery of the chef. While eating, cutlery should ideally be forgotten. It is only a «tool», which takes the food to the mouth! Balance in the weight distribution but also in the balance of the proportions are the details important for an architect! Just like the unusual lines and the perfect function.
