With a clear understanding of proportion, form, and material, John Pawson skillfully reduces objects to their essence. In his Piatina Plate, the British minimalist transforms rich, textural ebony wood into a sculptural disc with a subtle, sinuous indentation in its center. The smooth accessory serves as a refined coaster, elevating glassware while enhancing the drinking experience. The tabletop accessory also finds use in another area: as a soap dish in the bathroom. The dish is a simple yet powerful example of the designerâs mastery paring away until what is left cannot be improved through further subtraction. Regardless of where it is used, the Piatina Plate unites austerity with warmth and practicality for an enduring and surprisingly useful accessory.
