Hidden Culture consists of figurative objects and vessels.Â Through this collection the designer attempts to reveal the history andÂ mythology of each one of these objects. In this way he singles out all these elements that define the existence and form of an item making it easier for everyone to “understand” and evaluate it.

This porcelain collection is based on such concepts as cultural identity and aestheticization and their influence when it comes to the creation and functionality of an object. Bernhard ElsÃ¤sser considers that the selection of the appropriate material is very important, as this is one elementÂ which addsÂ “poetry” and functionality to his creation.
