Consumerist society has lost touch with the sources of the items it acquires, but playful pieces like this delightful Land Cheese Tray remind dairy lovers of where their creamy camembert has come from.

For a Parisian exhibition entitled "Design sur un plateau," the Milk Factory asked 5.5 Designers to create the cute culinary accessory. The imaginative team took up the task and explored a more symbolic approach to the hors-d'oeuvre dish's aesthetic, opting for an object that emulated the look of patchwork pastures.

The same fragmented agricultural landscape that you might see from an airplane window or a hilltop villa is produced in the form geometric shapes coated in varying green pigments. The perforated boxes that make up the Land Cheese Tray also act as containers for the storage of crackers, dips and assorted dairy delights.
