For when objects work, Kogan worked on a series of bowls that are characterized by a simple, clear language as well as a matter-of-fact functionality. His awareness of craft traditions and the availability of different raw materials in his native Brazil are apparent in this work. Also he is a great admirer of the Brazilian modernist generation including the Niemeyer shapes and architecture, which can be seen here as well. Kogan presented these bowls with a craft touch and a high tech look, mixing a maximum of functionality with a minimum of visible design complexity. Genuine Brazilian rubber is combined with copper to give originality in texture and aesthetic.
