Elementary forms that concentrate on the essential – with the fine sweep of its lines, TAPA becomes the creative element of a table that celebrates the untold variety of international cuisine. With TAPA, power comes in the form of reduction. The delicate appearance of the series is absolutely captivating. With TAPA, multi-award winning designer Mikaela Dörfel has developed a form that meets the exacting demands of exclusive cuisine. The elegant, shallow bowls of TAPA lend themselves to precise placement on the plates. The combination then provides the perfect setting for appetizers of every kind, vegetables, seafood, or salads – even pâtés and pastry items. The gentle sloping in the bottom of the interior catches up the liquids at the deeper, tapering end of the TAPA bowl. The small TAPA pitcher is equally suitable for sauces and dressings or for snacks and other tidbits. When creatively arranged, the basin-like spoons provide for decorative ensembles. Whether Mediterranean hors d'oeuvre culture, Asian specialties, or sophisticated buffets – the brilliantly designed form TAPA caters to the demands of opulent restaurants and hotels as much as it does the requirements of aspiring gourmets. TAPA is the affirmation of a dinner service that raises flexibility to a style.
