The dishes of surprising recipes

Many of the recipes on surprising recipes are presented on typical stylish plates with a black stripe. This is the On-Line collection by Royal Boch designed by the Antwerp architect bOb Van Reeth (see below). I am a big fan of the sleek design, ingenious in its simplicity. This is exactly the way I like to cook: simple and surprising

You can find everything on the internet. But the On-Line collection is a big exception. A single photo on Pinterest, and an article from 2009 in trends (a Belgian magazine), that was about it. If you don’t find it, create it. I decided to make a “fan page” myself.

Royal Boch

Royal Boch is a Belgian manufacturer of pottery (“faience”) with a tradition going back to 1841. The company had a number of up and downs in its long history, resulting in a restart in 2009. Here you can find more information:

On-Line collection

The On-line collection based on the design of the Antwerp architect Bob Van Reeth was a stylish exception in the company’s more classic designs. The goal was to appeal to a new and younger audience with this minimalist design. Based on the information I found, I suspect that this has been a limited success. Perhaps this can be a new start here 😉

Probably I bought the collection back in 2006, according to the price list that you can see below. Now that I see the prices I am quite surprised. The collection was quite expensive and meanwhile for sure collectors items 😉

Bob Van Reeth

The design for the On-line collection comes from the Antwerp architect Bob Van Reeth. He usually works under the artist name bOb Van Reeth. In 1981 he founded the AWG architects group with a number of colleagues. Among his best-known works are the “Huis Van Roosmalen” and the “Zuiderterras“, with which he initiated a modernisation of the skyline on the Scheldt in Antwerp. His design for the Royal Boch dinnerware was a one-off but very interesting project.
