Double O Tray
by Ghidini 1961
The Double O Tray, designed by Richard Hutten for Ghidini 1961, is an extension of the Double-O collection featuring his trademark oversized round handles, originally designed for a child's cup. The tray is a fun and practical object that brings surprise and panache to the table. The essential lines, the elegantly inward curved edge and the large round handles, all characterise the entire Double-O family. Hutten goes beyond the established modernist "form and function", adding fun and humour to function.
The Double O Tray is part of a collection of products designed by Richard Hutten for Ghidini 1961.
