Daphne Zuilhof's 'Food for Thought Tray' is an unusual food plate that really gives you something to think about. When it comes to what you're eating, it's easy to be oblivious to where your food comes from and what ingredients it contains. With the addition of a large acrylic magnifying glass, the birch laminate Food for Thought Tray forces you to get an up-close look at what you're putting in your body.

Even if you're not pondering very deeply, the tray at least encourages you to look at your food on a surface level, as in stopping to appreciate its look, texture and presentation before you dig into a meal.

Zuilhof's food tray was on display as part of the Konstfack student exhibition earlier this month for Milan Design Week.
