The concave shape and the knob of the lids of the Edo pans remind the observer of a beret sitting on a work surface: a nod to Patricia Urquiola's Basque origins. Thanks to this unique shape, the lid can accommodate a spoon or a ladle to mix food during cooking.
Designed by Patricia Urquiola, Edo pots blend different cultural references and formal suggestions. A richness of references that evokes the very essence of cooking: diverse ingredients creating delicious dishes. Edo refers to the Latin "edere" - that is "to eat" - but it is also the ancient name of Tokyo, where the pots with simple and graceful lines that inspired the designer come from. The design of the Edo series is softened by formal elements such as the light flare of the containers or the line of the handles reminiscent of ribbons pinned to a dress, which becomes a distinctive feature of the entire the entire cookware line.
