Temple (Cake Stand) by chris woodward
2012 - 2013, Platinum A'
Inspiration
I failed to find a modern looking cake stand for todays needs and lifestyles. I wanted a contemporary looking stand which could be easily stored in a cupboard or drawer, was easy to clean and dishwasher safe.
Creativity
Temple is easy to assemble by sliding the plates over the central tapered spine. Disassembly is just as easy by simply sliding them back off. All 4 main elements are held together by the Stacker. The mini spine helps keep all the elements together for multi angled compact storage. You can use different plate configurations for different occasions.
Design Challenges
The biggest challenge was the design drivers we created for the project:- clean & simple, contemporary in look & feel, a celebration of materials, easily cleaned & hygienic, compact when not in use, adaptable for a variety of occasions.
Production Technology
The design is shown with pressure molded ceramic plates in gloss white. The central spine is solid beech wood with an oiled finish. The 'mini spine' is self coloured injection moulded ABS with a fine texture. The design could use melamine for the plates and an ABS plastic spine has been developed.
