A plate inspired by identical twins is among a number of new products from Figgjo through Continental Chef Supplies (CCS).
The original version of Figgjo Egg (two indentations) won the Norwegian Design for Excellence Award in 2004.
The new Figgjo Egg consists of an eating surface with five depressions shaped like half an egg and lids shaped like the other half of the egg.
This product is unusual in that it has five completely separate areas, which effectively act as a plate and a bowl, providing new ways of presenting food. The lids give the product a stylish look without compromising practicality, creating a conversation piece among diners.
Paul Goodfellow of CCS says: "This market is constantly developing and keeps demanding new, unusual and 'innovative' products. The egg was designed for hors d'oeuvres and to meet chefs' demands for finding new ways of isolating flavours and condiments on a single plate, while the lids allow variations in temperature."
