I feel I should put a disclaimer at the beginning of this, so you aren’t as desperately disappointed as I was to discover that these gorgeous DIY wax tableware sets are in fact not for sale. Maaike Seegers, a student at the Design Academy Eindhoven, debuted Meltware at the school’s graduation show a couple of months ago, and as of yet they’re not available for purchase. Excuse me while I weep.
My love for the colour orange has been well documented on this little corner of the internet, but it’s not just the unapologetic brightness of the wax dishware that has me smitten. I love the simple stone moulds equally. And the thought of creating more spoons and bowls for any unexpected guests that turn up at the dinner table is pretty great, too.
I just hope someone snaps this up for commercial release, and soon!
