The unique form of this platter is defined by two cultures. The circular shape comes from the Indian chakla belan, while the handle has its origin in European cheese boards. Handmade from white Makrana marble, it has a slightly concave surface that reveals the many layers of formation of the material. It is a stylish and versatile accessory for the kitchen and dining table, and the material and manufacturing technique ensures each piece is completely unique.

We wanted to create a first collection that reflected Indian traditionality but with a Dutch simplicity.READ THE STORY
We asked Somya and Bob if they would share their story with us:
We met three years back through common Studioilse friends and soon discovered our mutual love for materials, crafts & culture. So we started to plan ways of bringing together these elements.
Somya wanted to start the first collection from India, as she wanted to show me the hands on approach to design in India and watch me respond to it. After looking around for a while, she found the perfect small independent marble maker just outside Jaipur, Mr Jitendre. He was passionate and very excited about the thought of collaborating.
A few months later we went back to India to spend some time in Rajasthan, to observe people carrying on with their daily rituals, getting inspired by them. What we wanted was to have a first collection that reflected India but with a Dutch simplicity.
Thank you for your time Somya and Bob! We wish you much success with your beautiful brand!
