This beautiful butter dish and knife are designed by architect João Faria.
Place a pat of butter on the top of the cylinder, then place the cap on top of the butter and press down to make the butter flower appear. Spread butter with included knife.
The butter dish's official name is Emotional Object #014: “Iris” because it is a part of a group of expressly designed objects. For now, Faria has produced 100 numbered and signed pieces, author’s editions.
Made of 316 grade stainless steel, laser-cut and laser welded. Assembled by experienced hands and polished manually to perfection.
April 2015: The Íris butter dish won the “Golden A’ Design Award” in “Bakeware, Tableware, Drinkware and Cookware Design” category.
July 2014: The Íris butter dish earned its first prize in the category “Decoration Objects” in POPs 2014 (Portuguese Original Design), sponsored by the Serralves Museum.
