The Story of Provoking Porcelain
''Art.E evolved as a dreamy runaway for both of us while we were working something completely different from porcelain tableware. At first, ceramics was just a way to bring something new and exciting to our daily routine. Just within a year, we got so addicted to this that we quit our jobs and started enjoying our lives making elegant and provoking porcelain creations!'', said the creators.
Inside the store, you will find the whole assortment of the brand - as well as the famous emblematic cups and many unmarked sculptures, plates, and surprises. Take a look at the special corner with gift ideas from the new line from Sofia - a shopping bag with the history of yellow pavers and many more things.
True food made from natural products - perfectly fitting to your body's needs. At Urban Table you will find all this, served in the comfort of the urban jungle. You will be filled with energy from the meat or vegan dishes, they will prepare you also a lactose-free cappuccino with your favorite nut milk, home combo or twist cocktail classics.
