Feine Goldringe auf seriell produzierten Tellern von KAHLA sind also nicht nur Dekor, sondern Infografiken, die sich beim Blick auf die Rückseite des Tellers erklären. So werden unterschwellig Fakten zu den unterschiedlichen Ernährungsverhältnissen auf der Welt an die Essenden vermittelt. Das Konzept der PlusMinus-Vasen ist ähnlich: Die Form ihrer Öffnungen symbolisiert Überfluss und Mangel, Geben und Nehmen. So treffen sie neben ihrer grazilen Designaussage eine dezente Aufforderung an unsere Gesellschaft.

Jonathan Radetz, born in 1985 in Lich (Germany), is a multidisciplinary designer based in Frankfurt. His background as a master carpenter coupled with his degree in product design shines through in his versatile work ranging from furniture design to accessories and fine jewellery. Positions at modern design brand e15 and in the studios of both Stefand Diez and Saskia Diez Jewellery also impacted on his working method and approach to design. Reinterpreting pieces with a unique vision, his design philosophy comes from an attraction to the timelessness in modern shape and an obsession with capturing this spirit in his work. For Jonathan Radetz creation is his passion: he constantly sees new possibilities and forms, finding his inspirations in fashion, architecture, furniture, nature and people. A fascination with breaking every idea down to its essential elements, he playfully yet methodically works with materials and forms to create furniture, accessories and fine jewellery.
