DESIGNER: Lluis Clotet for Alessi
Finally, a serving tray worthy of great appetizers! Spanish architect Lluis Clotet’s Pepa Hors-d’oeuvre Tray drew its inspiration from two sources: the characters from the novels of the poet Foix, who in turn lends his name to the tray, and crumpled paper, which was the impetus behind the visual look of Clotet’s series for Alessi.
The crimps in the tray are created from a complex, cold-pressing technique. This allows the reflective surface to change dramatically depending on light and perspective. Even if the tray is full of appetizers, the raised edges provide added visual appeal.
