anyone looking for that elusive Christmas gift for the design conscious person in their life should look at the new range of Classic Trays reproduced by Vitra Design Museum. They have 6 in the series by Charles & Ray Eames, Alexander Girard and this one (above left) by George Nelson. One of the great influential American designers, Nelson had a remarkable range of design talents including product design, graphic artist, architect, exhibition designer and writer. I was immediately drawn to this tray in "China Shop" design because it reminded me of my favourite fabric design Pottery by Stig Lindberg (above right)....how could I resist?
