Seldom do you expect to be delivered an in-flight meal and be taken with the airline's dishware. Napkin Tableware by Tatjana Rolle would, however, have this effect, serving up a sense of casual class on Virgin Atlantic instead of wonky plastic cups and utilitarian trays.

This quirky airplane crockery comprises a contorted salver and a shrugging coffee cup. Despite being made of PET metal, the platter and mug seem to embody a flimsiness through the folds and bends created in their deep drawn manufacturing.

Entirely intentional, this effect mimics the delicate quality of a paper cup and serviette which might hold a light and quick snack. But the creased material of Napkin Tableware by Tatjana Rolle does a great job of latching the teacup to the plate and keeping your meal contained during turbulence.
