Geometric forms and all things faceted and fractal are at the forefront of our minds and we’ve been considering current designs embracing this aesthetic.

These smart trays in nine luscious powder-coated finishes are Urbis’ pick of the bunch. A hit at Milan 2012, Swedish designer Clara von Zweigbergk’s Kaleido concept for HAY strikes a perfect balance between simplicity and function, fun and play. The trays’ numerous geometric edges and fresh candy colours are a treat for the eyes and the imagination. Moved around, mixed and matched, collected or stacked, Kaleido’s items are designed as separates but are wonderful (we think) when arranged together. On a practical level they make stylish accessories for serving coffee or drinks and housing trinkets or small household items. corporateculture.co.nz
