The London Future Systems firm was founded in 1979 by Jan Kaplicky, born in Czechoslovakia in 1937 and graduated from the College of Applied Arts and Architecture in Prague in 1962. From 1968 Kaplicky worked in London with Denys Lasdun, Piano and Rogers, Spencer and Webster and Norman Foster. After professional practice with Alsop and Lyall, yrm Architects and Richard Rogers and Partners, in 1989, he opened his own practice in partnership with Amanda Levete, who was born at Bridgend, Britain, in 1955, and qualified at the Architectural Association in London in 1982. Future Systems works in many parts of the world on architectural projects, urban furniture, interiors, industrial design and visual communication. Their work is distinctively innovative in its handling of image and its functional and technological research.
The "Bettina" table service is an attempt at a fresher, freer, more poetic and contemporary interpretation. The design makes them appear to be a single element but at the same time the ritual of separating the cup from the base and placing it in the hand prompts to find a new approach to drinking - a contemplative one, that provokes more awareness of one's gestures.
