What is 'Plato'?
The beauty of natural geometry.
Plato offers considerable design flexibility and possibilities due to the variety of base shapes and sizes, tab shapes, materials and interlocking methods available.
Plato’s base shapes can be used to create a wide range of complementary creative possibilities: lampshades, home decor, acoustic wall and ceiling panels, artistic installations, felt floor rugs - you are only limited by your imagination.
The possibilities are endless.
NYCxDESIGN Awards 2016
Kris was incredibly honored and humbled to have received an honoree award in Emerging Talent section of the inaugural NYCxDESIGN Awards.
Kris Ericksen, Designer
Inspired by the idea of play, Kris created Plato because he truly believes that play and creativity are important parts of our lives. Like the building blocks from our childhood we are only limited by our imagination as to what can be assembled using this system.
Plato provides an outlet for play that results in functional and beautiful everyday objects. Beyond lighting Kris wants to apply the same principles of play to other products.
Kris brings a combination of Danish and New Zealand origins influencing Plato, coupling South Pacific ingenuity and a "can do" attitude with the simplicity, minimalism and functionality of Scandinavian design heritage.
