This egg cup was part of Kristian Solmer Vedel’s ‘gourmet’ melamine tableware series. Through his designs, Vedel promoted his ideals of the betterment of society, catering to what ‘his fellow men need’. This egg cup even elevates breakfast into something ‘gourmet’, idealised.

Unlike traditional Scandinavian design, Vedel was interested in innovative space-conservation.
