Reversed Volumes Leaves is a series of plates designed by Wien-based design studio mischer’traxler as part of the Reversed Volumes collection realized for Spanish design brand PCM. Reversed Volumes collection 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.
