András Rigler : PING

Petite Friture, design editor, presents PING, a collection of penguin-shaped ceramic containers designed by András Rigler. A real family story, since PING consists of a dad, a mom, a baby - and even a grandpa! - but also because the collection is inspired by memories of the designer's grandparents ...

Four penguins with minimalist design used as ceramic containers, larger or smaller depending on the family member represented. Called PING, this series was born from a childhood memory: a Soviet iron toy - also in the shape of a penguin -, placed in the pantry of the grandparents of András Rigler, who seemed to be watching the aisles and come from the inhabitants in the house. A real starting point for the designer, who wanted to reinterpret and share his madeleine Proust to him.

But far from being content to produce a single piece, András Rigler has imagined an entire family, ranging from the baby who still seems stuck in his nest (height 13 centimeters) to dad, who can boast of reach the 33 centimeters. Ironically the newest member of the family, the grandfather recently joined the collection. Anyway, if each PING sports a unique design, all are sleek, minimalist and white. Slight are the aesthetic differences but they remain, and make each of the alcids a singular life companion, to pose in any room or any piece of furniture. It'll run at home!
