German designer David Meier (born 1990) is the driving force behind studiomeiid, which he founded in 2019. With a solid foundation in technical model making, as well as a Bachelor of Arts and a Master of Science in Industrial Design, he is known for his uncompromising aesthetic vision and for products that effortlessly merge a high degree of functionality with a strong visual direction. As a charming add-on, the young designer has never been afraid of the playful and humorous, taking it as a compliment if a product of him also puts a smile on your face. The Palua tray was the first product by David Meier for blomus.
THOUGHTFUL IN TWO SIZES: ZEN TRAY/CUTTING BOARD
One all-time kitchen classic is the cutting board, and reinventing this seemingly rather mundane product for the home chef might seem a rather futile task for any designer. Nevertheless, that is exactly what German designer David Meier did for blomus, with his Zen series: two brand-new cutting boards that double as trays with slim edges when turned upside down and have been named after the elegant and meticulously well-kept Japanese rock gardens.
PALUA BOARDS DESIGN BY DAVID MEIER
The PALUA set of oak boards is handmade of solid untreated oak. The design studio studiomeiid takes up the analogy of a 2 tier serving tray and redefines this.The reduction on basic Geometric shapes gives the objects a clear and functional expression, the different heights are pivotal in the decoration/presentation.
