With a matte finish on the outside and glossy, glazed interior, the measuring cups designed by Monica Förster are small objects that are extremely pleasant to the touch, adding pleasure to the experience of cooking. From a formal point of view, the designer based her work on the memory of the typical weights used for scales, which had their corresponding measurement engraved in them. Externally the Tower Measuring cups recall the shape of these weights but, naturally, are hollow inside and allowing the desired ingredients to be measured. When not in use, they can be stacked up, forming a small tower, a mini architectural creation in porcelain that can be displayed on kitchen counters.
