With the new Inku series from Serax, star chef Sergio Herman is seeking to inject Japanese simplicity into the dynamic ambience and glamour of a real brasserie. In contrast to Herman’s last collection, Surface, Inku has a very sophisticated, almost feminine, feel to it. The unusual feature of the Inku tableware series is that no one vessel is quite like another. The comprehensive collection, which ranges from small entrée dishes and bowls to large serving dishes, is available in three colours: Mussel White, Matt Black and Grey-Green. In the course of the year, the collection will be expanded to include further table and cooking accessories. In addition to the tableware, which is already available, there is a professional coffee and tea service, as well as a stylish, comprehensive range of glassware, including separate glasses for red, white and sparkling wine, long drinks and cocktails, champagne coupes and tumblers.
