Gourmet Trio Plate is a serving platter composed of three porcelain plates of different sizes. The plates appear joined together to form a whole, creating a new tableware concept. The range of sizes suggests different ways to appreciate the courses of a meal.
First seen at a exhibition at Gallery Raison Pure in Manhattan the Gourmet Trio Plate designed by rising French functional art designer Jean Marc Gady has become the must have complement to any exquisite table. These Gourmet plates were reproduced from a series of decorative wall plates. Jean Marc Gady designed the plates to be a visual center piece for the perfect table. He joined sets of three, five and seven white ceramic plates for his 2008 Gourmet series. The Trio is fascinating in its functionality as a party plate for the buffet table, a presentation plate for multi-part dishes, or the perfect plate “when foods can’t touch.” Oven and microwave safe, hand wash recommended, safety certified. The Gourmet Trio Plate is sold in a set of 2 in a gift box.
Jean-Marc Gady was born in Paris in 1971 and graduated from the Ecole Bleue in 1997. An emerging figure in new generation French design, his gift for handling the codes of de luxe creation ensures a range of intervention that extends from objects to space and includes scenography, furnishings, interior architecture and visual presentation. His portfolio speaks for itself: Apple Computers, Baccarat, Chanel, Christofle, De Beers, Dior, Guerlain, Louis Vuitton, Moët & Chandon. His career began in furniture, lighting and tableware, working for Ligne Roset and Liv’it. He was awarded several VIA permanent call grants for project development before joining Louis Vuitton as art director for display windows and events (2002-05), a post that took him all around the world, and notably to the Far East. In 2005 he set up his own design studio in Paris, and since 2008 he also teaches at the École Bleue. Early 2009, his first solo show in New York – ‘French Cancan’ at Gallery R’Pure – and at Forum Diffusion in September 2009 – made a clear statement of his vocabulary and range, in which elegance and wry humor are constants.
