Product Description

Turn, Turn, Turn. We love the function (always have) and are now happy to see this delightful slate piece. Indeed, it has a variety of uses: it can be used as a small turntable to aid in moving finger food, a rotating tray, a showcase for spices, and a revolving plate and so on.

Instead of a usual round shape, OTTAGONO revolving plate has eight sides revoking its ancestors. Inspired by the antique traditions of slate artisans of Genoa region, it revisits the essential octagonal geometric shape bringing beauty to the old kitchen accessory.With its central spiral over the charcoal matte surface, the tray features a pure design, pleasing to the eye and the touch.The natural raw stone finish blends impeccably with today’s materials and colours. This dark matte revolving plate will work perfectly with any of your fragile-look porcelain or glass tableware sets, creating a stunning high contrast effect. Rich and elegant, this slate appliance is also capable to make a statement by itself.

The craftsmen of the valley Fontanabuona, situated in the province of Genoa and famous for its rich slate quarries, can boast of the region’s long traditions in extraction and processing of this valuable material. Their skilful hands perform any kind of working with precision, care and real craftsmanship quality, creating delightful pieces of tableware and home décor from this famous black stone of Liguria.
