Makom Round Centerpiece
Landscape, topography, place. The Makom Round Centerpiece, a collaboration between designers Noam Dover and Yoav Reches, references our geography in both form and name — “makom” means “a place” in Hebrew. The multiple layers of this ceramic bowl are a mesmerizing three-dimensional representation of a topographic map, which we are accustomed to seeing in two dimensions. The Makom Round Centerpiece grew from the designers’ experience of being in nature. The translation of one representation of landscape to another utilizes the four elements of earth, water, wind, and fire, creating “an overall metaphor for the natural design process,” according to Reches. The hollow inner volume of the bowl is sealed with a cork lid, which also functions as the base of the Makom Round Centerpiece.
