The Lands Tray Collection by Carlos Jiménez

The abstract beauty of aerial landscapes transformed into versatile wooden trays.

Designers draw inspiration from all kinds of places to create their work; from a texture to an abstract concept or the simple beauty of a plant. For Spanish designer Carlos Jiménez, childhood memories of flying and seeing the world from the sky have provided the perfect source of inspiration to make the Lands series. Designed for GIR, this collection of wooden trays translates the features of aerial landscapes into practical desk accessories that are as beautiful as they are versatile.

The series comprises six wooden trays in different sizes that work especially well together. They fit each other perfectly and thus allow the user to create custom storage spaces on a desk or table. Made with different sides, the trays boast a zig-zag pattern on one side and a smooth surface on the other. Pens fit inside the grooves and stay in place. The zig-zag surface also provides great stability for smaller trays. Ideal to organize items and to keep them close at hand, the Lands series suits everything from writing tools and accessories to stationery, keys, and other small objects. Crafted from solid ash or steamed walnut wood, each tray combines traditional craftsmanship and modern production techniques. You can find the Lands series by Carlos Jiménez on GIR’s website, with each tray available separately. Photographs© Tatjana Zlatkovic.
