Bone China - the IKEA wayAs the material for SKYN series we chose Bone China, which can be made so thin that it's almost transparent. Bone China has a creamy white colour that is naturally beautiful. The design came about because we wanted to make use of Bone China's ability to be made thin, and still be very durable. The alternating concave and convex sides gives SKYN a soft curvy movement. SKYN can be washed in the dishwasher and put in the microwave of course. When IKEA makes fine dinnerware, you can be sure it also works for everyday use. That makes it even nicer, we think.
Designer Ehlén Johansson"My inspiration for the SKYN dinnerware series came mainly from the material itself. The series is made from Bone China, which can be made so thin that it almost lets light through. Bone China also has a pleasant, creamy white colour and is strong and durable, too. I designed the series with curvy shapes to give it a lively feeling. That also makes it possible for everyone to compose their own shapes when they set the table, by arranging the pieces in different ways."
