Plate Tissue is a minimal design created by New York-based designer Liu Kejia. Liu Kejia is a recent graduate of the Rochester Institute of Technology’s Masters Industrial Design program. She is mainly passionate about furniture and product design, and has already manufactured a number of pieces. We spoke briefly about her future plans in design, and she is very adamant about starting her own design firm and product line.
Plate Tissue is one of Liu Kejia’s most recent design accomplishments. The entire design is constructed of two materials: cork and white polycarbonate. The reasoning behind these material choices is due to their flexible manufacturing nature, as well as their low cost. The top portion of the tissue box functions as a recessed surface to place small accessories such as skin care products, pens, or make up.
I am definitely a huge fan of the material combination. I think white goes exceptionally well with natural colored materials such as wood or cork. The embossed portion of the tissue box is both organically aesthetic and functional. It just goes to show how even the simplest of materials can combine to look as amazing as Plate Tissue.
