Clock-Like Crockery

The Ratio Tray is a Dish That Divides with Hour-Hand Separators

— February 13, 2014 — Art & Design
While observing the Ratio Tray, I'm tempted by the idea that the hours 1 o'clock through 4 o'clock might be a designated dessert period. However, even though this charming candy dish may look a great deal like a timepiece, its hour and minute hands are actually inactive.

KIMU Design gave these gorgeous wooden bowls a pair of tiny brass rods that pivot from the center. These must be moved manually; they invite you to determine the axis so to partition the platter according to your preference. Available in three sizes, the elegant salvers are ideal for setting out slices of cake, handfuls of sweets and stacks of cookies when you host a gathering. I suppose the Ratio Tray would work just as well for veggies too.
Trend Themes
1. Interactive Servingware - The Ratio Tray incorporates movable brass rods to allow users to partition the dish according to their preference, creating an interactive serving experience.
2. Functional Aesthetics - KIMU Design combines the charm of a timepiece with the functionality of a serving dish, adding a unique touch to tabletop aesthetics.
3. Personalized Presentation - The Ratio Tray enables users to customize the presentation of their food, giving them the opportunity to create visually appealing arrangements.
Industry Implications
1. Tableware - The Ratio Tray falls under the tableware industry, offering a new and innovative design for serving dishes.
2. Home Decor - The Ratio Tray can also be seen as a home decor item, adding a stylish and functional element to a dining or living space.
3. Event Planning - Event planners and caterers can take advantage of the Ratio Tray to enhance the visual appeal and interactive experience of their food presentations.
