Tools for food were the first objects designed by humans, we need them to survive. Looking the tools evolution from sharp stones to modern hi-tech tools, I noted that plates didn’t change radically their shapes. Why do we stick with this round shape? The reasons are many but the most relevant is the habit: in this round shape, we eat for thousands of years. The most used material is still clay and porcelain, that’s why I think we must be respectful to these disciplines.
