Color — Milk
If you spring for more than one of these bowls (which we highly recommend), you might notice some subtle differences between them. That’s because they’re entirely handcrafted—in Italy—by master artisans, so each one is unique. Done in the highest-quality earthenware ceramics, these bowls are resistant to scratches and heat and safe for use in the dishwasher and the microwave. With a clean, modern shape (perfectly flat base and shallow, wide basin) and a glossy glaze, Bilancia will blend in seamlessly with whatever you’ve got in your kitchen. We like it best with the matching plates.
Founded in 2006 by Jay Vosoghi and Sara Mostofi, R+D.LAB is a Milan-based creative design studio that collaborates with artisans and traditional manufacturers to create beautiful, functional, distinctive home goods. Though we first fell in love with the glassware—each of the artfully curved carafes and finely ribbed chalices is hand-blown in Italy by third-generation glassblowers—their functional objets d'art (earthenware ceramics, stunning wool blankets) are what keep us coming back.
