Here’s a cool concept that can keep your food warm and your dinner guests talking.
The Hot Plate by Ami Drach and Dov Ganchrow. Using silk-screened gold and amorphic metal films on ceramic plates, Drach and Ganchrow were able to design this unique and interesting set of hot plates that are as stylish as they are functional. This is the same way printed circuit boards or car windshield defrosters work, by the way. You simply connect the hot plate to an electrical source and an electric current runs through the pattern, keeping your food warm.
