In the midst of our cries over environmental destruction and lessons in at-home chemistry, it seemed about time for a brief return to designs that highlight the simple pleasures in life. Above are two designs that focus on food as the inspiration for innovation.
The Lunar Design cake plate is a tasteful combination of ingenuity and humor. With a perfect compartment for a generous wedge of cake, and a handy holder for the candle, the plate “solves the age-old problem of where to put the candle once the song is over.” Sometimes the simplest quandaries spark design genius.
Call me compulsive, but I have specific preferences about which foods I like to eat from certain dishes. Presentation, portion and even the weight and color of dishware all influence the total dining experience. Someday I’ll eat a meal on the Alto dish set and finish it off with dessert on the Lunar cake plate – the dream dining experience of the obsessively orderly.
