Props for the Scandinavian version of Tampopo

Amsterdam designer Aldo Bakker's series of porcelain tableware.
(From dezeen)

If one were to imagine a slicker Scandinavian version of Tampopo, director Juzo Itami's Japanese "Spaghetti western," Aldo Bakker's porcelain vessels could be props for the young man in the white suit and his lover. To date, two scenes from Tampopo still rank as my all-time favorite erotic film moments.
Watch these scenes (the egg yolk and the oyster) below. I'm somehow imagining a fantastical collaboration between Bakker and Itami, but I'm not quite sure how that would manifest in reality...
