The bowl was designed by Ingegerd Råman in 1997 for the legendary – but since closed – Japanese Stockholm restaurant One Happy Cloud by Claesson Koivisto Rune. The restaurant was one of the architects’ first commissions. They had become close friends with Råman from their work on the conversion of an abandoned school building in Baldringe into her home.
”When the boys asked, I was delighted. At the time I was handcrafting myself much of my pottery. I hand-threw all the bowls for the restaurant. The inside of the rim has an in-fold to serve as a support to help grip food like noodles with your chopsticks. I have always believed that function and beauty should weigh equal,” says Ingegerd Råman.
The One Happy Cloud soup bowl for Smaller Objects is moulded in matt anthracite glazed stoneware by historic Swedish manufacturer Gustavsberg.
