The Coalesce Picnic System is a Sophisticated Set of Outdoor Dishes

The incorporation of wine makes many activities instantly classier but the Coalesce Picnic System has a sophisticated quality all of its own. The mod looking sleeve contains a pair of metal platters that are complete with keyhole notches for holding a glass of vino each.

Exquisite sculptural metal forms the unique plates, flaunting patterns that mimic the stringy surface of the silicone case. This open outer layer provides a place to stash serviettes, a blanket and other items, in addition to serving up enhanced visual interest. The shallow canary yellow cover can also be used as trays.

Designer Philip Stankard created the Coalesce Picnic System based on inspiration from artist Sole LeWitt's work, and primarily for use at Madison's Concerts on the Square.
