He set out to create a single collection for Chef&Sommelier, yet in the end four were developed: Concrete, Fragment, Holi and Eternity! He explained that working with Chef&Sommelier was a natural outgrowth of his other work, as tableware adds the finishing touch to interior design and forms a part of the chef's overall vision. The restaurant industry is now reinventing itself, finding a way to combine modernity and tradition in order to rewrite the rules and blend disparate styles. The designer brought these ideas to life to offer something innovative and surprising, and to create a new tasting experience. Concrete perfectly embodies this aim. Jean-Philippe Nuel channelled the irreverent spirit of street art to design plates that look as though they were made from concrete, a material which is enjoying a new-found status as a high-end design element. Following the example of the new generation of chefs and the trends of neo-gastronomy, Concrete breaks with tradition for an unusual and primitive look, in order to showcase the most inventive dishes.
