When we decided to make SKYN, we wanted to make a dinnerware series that felt as formal as it did practical and could be used for both everyday and parties. Why have several dinnerware services when one is all you need? we thought. One that suits all types of table settings, regardless of whether it's Christmas, someone's birthday or just an ordinary Tuesday. Read More
Some materials have that something extra. Fine China has a creamy white colour that is naturally beautiful. And because Fine China is extra durable, it can be made very thin and gets a lightness in appearance, which is more difficult to achieve with other types of ceramic materials.
Inspired by the qualities of Fine China we wanted to find a design that would exude the same lightness. The curvy shapes on SKYN are the result of the alternating concave and convex sides on the plates and bowls. That may sound complicated, but if you look at SKYN plate from above you can see that it's completely round. And if you feel along the edges you can feel how the material is either rounded or straight. And it's this alternation between the two that gives SKYN its curvy look.
SKYN can be washed in the dishwasher and used 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.
