Digna Kosse graduated cum laude at Design Academy Eindhoven (The Netherlands) in 2009. Since then she is working as a free-lance designer. I love her ceramics project ‘een menselijke maat’.

Digna: “People are consuming more and more. All materials and resources we are using, are not in proportion to our own bodies, and our size in relation to the planet we are living on. For a long time, the human body has been the measure for many things, f.i. distances and weights. In this project, my body becomes a measure for consumption.”

Digna measured all parts of her body in volumes (litres)and these volumes she has captured in a series of tableware. On every bowl, cup and dish an engravement is placed, that says which part of the body and which volume fit into it.
