Designed by Lenka Záhorková from NALEJTO, a group of young Czech porcelain designers focusing on utilitarian pottery, this cup proves that ‘functional’ doesn’t necessarily mean boring. It has a beautiful relief pattern, which feels nice when you hold it, and there’s glazing on the inside as well as on the edges so that you can use it comfortably.
Nalejto is basically a girl band, but instead of pop hits, they make beautiful porcelain. There are three members at the moment – Markéta Kalivodová, Lucie Vostalová and Lenka Záhorková. Each of them has her own style, technique and source of inspiration, and yet, their brand has a very distinctive charm and personality. This might be because they all have a common goal – to find the right balance between aesthetics and functionality.
