HAY's Sobremesa Stripe cookie jar is a cheerful and attractive object created by Egyptian chef and artist Laila Gohar, designed to make cooking and dining an experiential affair. The beautiful, hand-painted jar equipped with a lid is suitable for both everyday settings and festive occasions, and it is easy to combine with other tableware sets as well. The unique Sobremesa jar also works as a decorative item when taking a break from being the adorned centre of the table setting – the functional vessel keeps small items in check without compromising on fun.
The Sobremesa collection, created in collaboration with Laila Gohar and HAY, is a true feast for the senses. The colourful and friendly objects invite you to transform a meal into something extraordinary. For Gohar, a meal is a story that involves much more than just eating; it is about carefully choosing the ingredients, preparing the food with thought and soul, setting the table, enjoying the meal with friends or family, and finally, Sobremesa – a moment linked to Spanish culture, where you linger around the table enjoying the atmosphere and life itself.
