Architects and engineers will especially adore these graph paper platters; their ceramic surfaces are divvied up into tiny quadrants that enable accurate cutting into "more digestable pieces." Each of the four trays takes a rigid rectangular form with printed patterns of grids and crosses in soft and straight strokes of paint.

The SAIC Origin Cuatro Platters might be fairly minimalist, but the lines applied give them aesthetic detail. The user can have the benefit of these markings for more than decoration too, for they can serve to help with the presentation of certain types of dishes. Measure out the perfect slice of cake or the ideal cut of steak, keeping sizes consistent and servings well-formed. These graph paper platters may also appeal to perfectionists, who may choose never to dirty them at all.
