47 Unique Plate Designs

From Tropical Opulence Housewares to Geometric Dishware Decor

— August 5, 2014 — Art & Design
From decorative dishes to high tech houseware sets, these unique plate designs are sure to make dinner time that much more fun. Whether they are designed to get your dinner guests talking or to aid in child development, the kitchen accessories are unique and sophisticated in their aesthetic.

Standouts from this list of unique plate designs include The Spready Bear Plate, a dish that is designed to encourage young children to learn to eat on their own. The plate is shaped to resemble a bear's head and features "two bulging brown eyes, ears that are concave so they can hold different foods and a spoon that makes the bear look like he's smiling".

Another memorable design from the list are gamer-inspired plates by Olly Moss that are a modern translation of traditional Asian motifs.
