Michael Lindner: Sandblasted Blowfish with Bamboo (C3)
Product Number: 002-514-0069
The archetype of the Blowfish shape is, essentially, a sort of asymmetrically paneled Apple, and though they can be found in wide variety, most still keep to relatively similar proportions as far as height and length of bowl are concerned. Michael tosses those assumptions out the window, however, to produce this quite sleek little number, which to my eye looks rather like one of the wilder, more organic variations produced by the big names of the Japanese school, captured in the process of racing off somewhere in quite a hurry. "Organic" and "speeding" aren't exactly two design directions we often see combined, to say the least, but in this particular creation Michael has somehow managed to pull it all off perfectly.
