Postmodern Serving Tray by Michael Graves, Stainless Steel and Frosted Glass, 2000 USA


This serving tray embodies Michael Graves' way of making everyday objects noble and accessible.

Thick and round, the rubber-like handles have a good grip and feel soft at the same time. They recall the similarly thick and round handles of Michael Graves' acclaimed designs for Alessi. Their blue color is also a strong Michael Graves signature. The stainless steel rim generously circles an almost industrial frosted glass bottom fixed by rivets. The tray and its 2 handles are like intertwined circles. A well balanced design: delicate like glass and strong like stainless steel. The tray bears the embossed signature of Michael Graves.

A wonderful piece at the intersection of Art Deco and Postmodernity.

Released in USA in 2000, this « Serving tray » is new and unused.
