Milan 2014: Dutch designer Frederik Roijé has created a series of metal trays that form criss-crossing patterns when stacked on top of each other (+ slideshow).
Frederik Roijé's set of three Texture Trays are made from bent powder-coated steel bars, which run in parallel diagonal lines.
These curve up at the edges and join a bar forming the rim around the top. A grid pattern is formed when the different-sized trays are stacked inside one another.
The two smaller pieces are designed to sit inside the largest tray.
"We were inspired by all the different textures around us so you can play with it and make different combinations," Roijé told Dezeen.
Designed to fit together on a desktop, the trays can be used for organising files and stationery.
"You can put magazines and other things in there. We have all these phones, keys and stuff like that on the table so we wanted to put them somewhere," said Roijé.
The trays were on show as part of an exhibition of Dutch design at Via Savona 33 in Milan's Tortona district last week.
