This is the first meal that I have eaten since finishing my 8 piece dinnerware set of Heller Melamine designed by the great Massimo Vignelli (in 1964). The tray is vintage 1970s Anna Castelli Ferrieri for Kartell. Orange melamine mixing bowl by Rosti of Denmark. Various assorted vintage fiberglass serving trays.
About the dinnerware set, "I like to design to be semantically correct, syntactically consistent, and pragmatically understandable," said Massimo Vignelli. Originally manufactured in Italy, this stackable dinnerware won the prestigious Compasso d'Oro Award for Good Design in 1964. In 1971, manufacturing moved to the United States, and Heller Dinnerware became the first product made by Heller a company that went on to produce many beautiful designed objects. I love this set and am glad to have amassed my full serving. Photos of a dinner to come!
