Platu, an olive tree designed for olive oil.
The Platu is a unique and functional object specifically for use as an olive oil dish into which to dip bread. Consisting of two complementary parts, Platu's organic and expressive design is inspired by the fluidity of olive oil and the purity of the olive tree. Its white colour not only refers to the purity of the olive tree, an ancestral symbol of mankind, but also serves to highlight the different colours and densities of the olive oil. The black painted square base frames and enhances the white shape and emphasises the design. Platu is a 100% Portuguese project created by the designer Miguel Pinto Felix.
Base - 15x15cm; Olive tree: aprox. 13x13cm
