Something the world has never seen before. SKETCH – the extraordinary aesthetics of the black ceramic platter is inspired by Far Eastern calligraphy. A good example of how the unusual design of a platter can herald new, exciting meal compositions. Designed exclusively for PLAYGROUND.
More ideas for experimentation
Crazy, sexy, cool
Definitely not for romantics. This gastronomic style rocks the joint and is more for adrenaline junkies. A dark, masculine look vigorously sweeps away decorative baubles from the table, creating space for natural vintage style pushed to the extreme.
Gritty and manly. Take, for example, thick wooden boards made from solid Russian oak, cut with a chainsaw and imbued with linseed oil. Vegetable crisps are placed in a stainless steel container. Place mats made from recycled leather and natural rubber unite tactile aesthetics with functionality and the conservation of resources.
Presentation with a strong profile
Heavy metal: serving with an industrial style – the purest version of shabby chic, making not only men’s hearts beat faster. The dining platforms are straightforward NARA stoneware with a surface that brings to mind the rough, tangible beauty of cast iron.
Best of all, the combination with hammered stainless steel makes a brilliant contrast and emphasizes the craftsmanship of cooking. Such contrasts allow you to create interesting tension when presenting food – between cool functionality and warm refinement.
‘I always say that I do not think of myself as a chef. I try to be a storyteller.’

A natural spectacle
Off the beaten track. To pique the curiosity of guests, PLAYGROUND likes to venture into uncharted territory. Why not bring items to the table that people have never seen before in restaurants? One example is natural stones. They bring cool mineral effects into play and look like compact nests, presenting their contents like treasures.
Rough table companions. Natural stones push the idea of ‘natural presentation’ to the limit. Each find is truly unique, picked and smoothed by hand. Every item has its own particular charm.
A casual freshness offensive.
