Welcome to the design world of Absolute Appetite: Beautiful tabelware products that add sensations, emotions and enjoyment to the contemporary urban home.

"Tickle your senses!"

Ingrid Ruegemer

"Ingrid Ruegemer's approach is a combination of physical experimentation with materials and craft processes, exploration of shape through traditional sculpting methods and the implementation of digital technologies. In the making process Ingrid Ruegemer values materials that age well, she focuses on high quality making skills and great attention to detail. Therefore Ingrid Ruegemer only collaborates with highly experienced craftsmen, chosen particularly for each project."

Ingrid Ruegemer graduated with a diploma in communication-design and started her career as a graphic designer and illustrator in 1991.
Ingrid Ruegemer designed for various design studios and publishers before she left Germany in 1997 to gather international work experience. Her design journey took her to diverse places such as Cape Town, London, Grand Cayman and Barcelona where she worked as a designer and artist. In 2001 Ingrid returned to London where she founded an interdisciplinary design studio together with her husband Oliver Szasz. Ingrid Ruegemer's passion for product design led to a Master degree in ceramic design from Central Saint Martins College of Art and Design (2007). This was the starting point for the Absolute Appetite tableware collection, which was successfully launched in 2008.

BOULES Tumblers (design: Ingrid Ruegemer)

BOULES Tumblers – Striking aesthetics and elegant timelessness with a touch of playfulness. Each tactile glass is skilfully mouth blown and hand finished with delicate lenses, which add a surprising visual element. BOULES’ curved and heavy bottoms allow the tumblers to rock, while the lens guarantees a stable position at a playful angle. The ideal talking point at any table.

FROOTY Sensual Smoothie Cups (design: Ingrid Ruegemer)

FROOTY sensual smoothie cups have been designed to bring the magic of fruit to life. Smoothies are healthy, convenient and tasty, but fruit can also be seductive and playful, and eating fruit can be a sensual experience. FROOTY cups provide a new, tactile drinking experience that aims to stimulate the senses. With their sculptural aesthetics and flawless finish, these delicate cups are both decorative and eye-catching.
Each fine bone china cup is traditionally handcrafted.

SAMBA Spice Shakers (design: Ingrid Ruegemer)

SAMBA spice shakers combine functionality and playful elegance. SAMBA pays homage to the magic of South American rhythm, passion and sensuality – its design being inspired by the principle of the maracas. Just like maracas, the shakers become musical instruments when in use, and their alluring curves beg to be touched. The shakers are available in three variations: salt and pepper, salt and chilli, or sugar and cocoa. Each fine bone china shaker is traditionally handcrafted, and each set comes with two red and two black silicone rubber seals.
