Amongst the company’s key designers are some of world’s finest.
Gemma Bernal is one such, and is one of RAK Porcelain’s key designers. She spends her professional life in design, thinking of products in a different light. In her opinion, ideas and design proposals arise out of multidisciplinary conception and a close relationship with the right people. She splits her work life between design creation and design teaching, an endeavor that requires her to analyse, explain and communicate her own vision. Gemma has worked with various renowned chefs sharing a Mediterranean vision, and she has found inspiration in young chefs and professional reviewers seeking different approaches in culinary activities. Gemma designed two beautiful collections, named Marea and Giro, developed by RAK Porcelain. Marea is designed to enhance culinary presentation and Giro is based on geometric shapes and forms. The result is an appearance of different sizes, tilted planes and inclinations showcasing the design’s dexterity and originality.
