Platu, an Olive Tree Designed for Olive Oil
The Platu is a unique and functional object of design, specifically for use as an olive oil dish for tasting with bread. Consisting of two complementary parts, the organic and expressive design of the Platu is inspired by the fluidity of olive oil and the purity of the olive tree. The white colour is not only a reference to the purity of this tree, a symbol of ancestral heritage, it is also intended to highlight the different colours and densities of the olive oil. The square base, glazed black, frames and enhances the white form, emphasising the design. The Platu is a 100% portuguese project created by designer Miguel Pinto Félix.
