Reversed Volumes is a unique series of leaf plates designed by the Mischer'Traxler studio and handcrafted in Spain by PCM Design. Each plate is completely unique, capturing the distinct vein patterns in different plant types, including leaf species like the Diffenbachia, Ficus Elastica and Monstera.

The leaves were cast and dried, with their imprints then turned into an unusual series of platters using food-safe and waterproof resin. In addition to the variations in leaf shape and veining, there's also color to help differentiate the leaf types. There's a slight indentation to the platters, but they are still more comparable to the form of a plate rather than a bowl. Since the plates are all hand-crafted, this allows a greater level of variance in each platter's green coloring and vein detailing.
