Hi Tech Trays for the Modern Home

View all 14 Photos

The most recent project to come out of Layer studio investigates the relationship between technology and the domestic space. Through a collaboration with Bitossi Ceramiche, the brand has created a series of modular, dual-purpose ceramic trays that seamlessly incorporate wireless charging and table-top storage. Described as “quiet technology,” the simple trays feature sectional dividers to keep track of small items like jewelry, coins, office supplies, etc. alongside a surface that offers subtle, wireless charging through induction. Thanks to a thoughtful use of material and color, these functional beauties read more as home décor than tech accessory; a sophisticated palette and softened geometric form blends into the background with ease. And the collection can be updated as charging technology advances because of its clever modularity, making this a timeless accessory for any setting.

​Lizzie Wright is an aspiring artist and designer with a passion for the written word. While she works on her BFA in Industrial Design at the Rhode Island School of Design (RISD), she spends her (rare) spare time riding around Providence on her trusty Cannondale and drinking lots of coffee. She is especially fascinated by the dichotomy between aesthetic form and function, which has an immense influence on her work. As a lover of the natural world, Lizzie plans to focus on Nature, Culture, and Sustainability Studies to pursue a more efficient future for design. Read more by visiting her website
