This dish drainer was designed by DBA, a New York design company that focuses on intelligent and sustainable construction and packaging.
Their concept for a dishrack is fairly brilliant, and we wish that someone would have thought of this a long time ago. The rack is made of recycled polypropylene and it's ultra-simple: A dense grid of rods that can hold small items like cutlery fades evenly to more widely-spaced rods that are spaced far enough apart to hold pots, pans, and bowls. There is mesh and a drain tray under the rods so that it can drain easily.
So great, right? We could totally go for one of these. This product is forthcoming from DBA.
