Overview

The FEAST tableware collection designed by renowned British-Israeli chef Yotam Ottolenghi and Italian artist Ivo Bisignano for Serax showcases an abundance of colors, prints and positive vibes. “I have an obsession for the O”, Ivo Bisignano explains. “The O shape of a face, the O of a circle, a dot, a double dot and of course: the O of Ottolenghi. The continuum of the O shape is something I find very intriguing.” Apart from the graphic language of the O, the artist also incorporates abstract images of vegetables, an essential ingredient in Ottolenghi’s signature cuisine.
It reflects everything chef Ottolenghi stands for. The various sizes in plates, the vibrant colors and different patterns all evoke the typical Ottolenghi feeling of ‘outrageous casualness’. “This collection is a collaboration nourished by camaraderie and by the sharing of lovingly-made food around a beautifully-laid table. "Ivo's art, in whatever medium, is honest, expressive, bold, joyful and colorful. Attributes we strive to achieve in our food.” comments Ottolenghi. “The plates are like different spices”, adds Ivo Bisignano. “It is the combination and proportion of the different components that will define the flavor.”

Serax Philosophy is to look for beauty everyday, “to bring the good things that make life worth living, the things that create a home that inspires happiness”, to offer products that have soul. Every collection is crafted traditionally.

Yotam Ottolenghi & Ivo Bisignano

Yotam Ottolenghi is the owner and chef of six London-based delis and restaurants. He is the author of eight best-selling cookery books, including renowned titles as Plenty, Jerusalem and Simple. Amongst several prizes, Yotam won two James Beard awards in the US and the UK National Book Award. Yotam has been a weekly columnist for the Saturday Guardian for over thirteen years and is a regular contributor to The New York Times. His commitment to the championing of vegetables, as well as ingredients once seen as "exotic" has led to what some call “The Ottolenghi effect”. This is shorthand for the creation of a meal which is full of colour, flavour, bounty and sunshine. Originally from Sicily, and trained as an architect, Ivo Bisignano is an artist with many different souls. Beginning with fashion illustration for brands like Prada, Missoni and Fratelli Rossetti early in his career, he has gone on to make significant contributions in media ranging from sculpture to painting to video and animation. With an often surrealistic atmosphere, Bisignano’s art is also imbued with a strong sense of play and irony, evoking an aesthetic of past and highly detailed worlds. In 2020 Bisignano exhibited sculptural works in the Human Forms exhibition located at the Bet Guvrin caves in Israel. Bisignano’s meeting and subsequent work with renowned chef Yotam Ottolenghi has led to the realization of numerous collaborative projects, including sculptures for Ottolenghi’s London restaurants.
