The Week in Craft: December 26, 2012

Massimo plates, 2011, high-density recycled cork. When I was a kid, we had a full set of the colorful, stacking plates and cups designed for Heller by Massimo Vignelli. I have never forgotten the perfect simplicity of form and color relationships, and this set of stacking serving plates is my tribute to this memory. The high density cork is washable and food safe and can be used to serve or display just about anything. The nesting allows for maximum function in minimum space.
