As useful as any bowl or plate might be, something like the Rosenthal Surface Serving Tray can offer a little more intrigue in the way it presents edibles. Instead of inviting a heap of fruit, vegetables or nuts in the center of a salver, this unique, glazed porcelain item is composed of a hardened sheet of pleated planes that create a cluster of different indentations.

The little troughs that form within the fabric of the ceramic platter are ideal for placing different types of foods, or perhaps dividing snacks up or separating nut shells from whole kernels. The piece has a contemporary appeal with its whitewashed enamel and paper-like appearance, and the Rosenthal Surface Serving Tray would make a great centerpiece amidst a stark minimalist dining set.
