New York-based designer Joe Doucet has tackled the mundane with a simple and thoughtful cheese plate and knife design for HatchHub.
Details: walnut and stainless steel. “The real challenge of a designer is not in making a beautiful one-off gallery piece, but in tackling the mundane. What could be more banal than a cheese plate? Can you make choices which make it highly appealing, better in function and, very importantly, considerate of manufacturing processes?” says Doucet.
Designer: Houston, Texas born Doucet studied Communication Design at the Art Center College of Design, but is now better known for his award winning industrial design and his mantra, “Everything Communicates”.
