Das Objekt / plate

Das Objekt
Das Objekt

This project focuses on the icon of product. “ Das Objekt” means “this thing” in English. We are searching for the essence of this product. And then designer remove the extra functions. The product will come back to its original one. Finally, we created new icon for common plate..
When people are washing plates, we often meets some troubles. After washing, making dish stand up, waiting them to be dry, and then put them into the cabinet. But the point is putting the dish stand up is not so easy. That’s the reason why we cut one edge from it.
