Plateau (2015) tray series are overlapping each other in different levels of height creating a connection between the elements presented. The top surface of the trays is held up by facetted structures that are visually reaching over the edges. The idea is a result of a situation I experienced in his flat in Oslo; during a dinner with friends his small dining table forced them to put the serving trays on top of each other, creating a landscape of trays in the centre of the table. The way the trays overlapped created an intimate zone in the centre of the table and a good atmosphere in the room.
