Objects Of Design #279: Winter Plates

Skack serving bowls and Julfint mugs

These really do have a terrible name – SKACK – but let’s not be put off by that. These serving bowls have a great graphic design and the monochrome colours will look great with almost any food you care to give them. Bright green peas, or should that be sprouts, strawberry ice cream, you name it.

There are glass plates with white snowflake patterns to complete the set, but they feel very Christmas, where I reckon you could use Skack all year round quite happily.
