Seen at ICFF: Slow Food Tray from Design Glut

From the designers who brought you the Egg Pants, here comes an old-fashioned cafeteria tray, but with a twist.

Trays like these were originally designed to slide quickly along a fast food line, but this tray takes that concept and subverts it with a reminder to go slow. More photos below...

We spent a couple hours at ICFF, the International Contemporary Furniture Fair, this weekend. There's not so much here for us practical cooks, but there was plenty of eye candy and some really fun concepts for the kitchen.

This tray with a Slow Food cut-out is from Design Glut, the same group that brought you those clever Egg Pants. We met the charming Kegan Fisher and Liz Kinnmark, the designers from Design Glut, at ICFF and we really like their small portfolio of witty products that comment on contemporary issues in food and energy. We also love their elegant teacup Hookmaker.

They say that the Slow Food Tray reclaims a fast food tray and encourages healthy, high-quality, sustainable meals. You can purchase it through their website. We'd like to buy one and hang it on the wall.
