A childhood in Afghanistan, Lebanon and Portugal and a design and silversmithing education in Germany and at The Royal College of Art, London was always going to make Andreas Fabian well connected to global design culture. Indeed interest in Fabian’s work is worldwide with an exhibition record spanning London to Osaka.
In his objects cool sighted functionalism meets reinterpretation and wry humour to create domestic objects that sensually occupy a much more thoughtful table landscape than usual. The refined details of a silversmith are seductive but they are undercut by an astringent clear-sighted questioning. The answers are challenging, provocative and often humorous.
His tableware creations are nourished by philosophical concepts (PhD - Brunel University 2011) and fruitful collaborations with chefs and food researchers such as Roberto Cortez (US) and Charles Michel (UK & Colombia).
