Reversed Volumes – leaves are part of the Reversed Volumes collection designed by mischer’traxler for PCM.
Reversed Volumes are shaped by capturing the imprint of vegetables/fruits/leaves and an existing bowl or plate. The imprints of three different species of leaves (diffenbachia, ficus elastica, monstera), all varying in style, size and colour form the leaf-plates.
For creating the Design, the space between a leaf and a plate was filled up with casting material. Once cast and dried, the natural element is shown very detailed from a new point of view. These imprints are replicated as food-safe and water proof trays, representing precisely the veins and wrinkles of the used leaves. Flat and wide the leaf-plates can be used to serve and present food and form a good addition to the collection of reversed volumes bowls.
All reversed volumes are hand-crafted in a semi industrial process in Spain. This method allows slight differences in colour to bring more natural variance into the serial production.
