Called Dish Drainer Geo, the gentle change in levels forces the water to drain off.

Here is some more information from Royal VKB:
Dish Drainer Geo
The Dish Drainer Geo has been designed to drain small amount of washing-up. The subtle height differences in the design will ensure that the water will drain off. The Dish Drainer Geo means it is no longer necessary to use a large dish drainer which is awkward to store.
The Dish Drainer Geo is flat and takes up very little space. It can be put away if required, but that really isn’t necessary because its design, inspired by geographical contour lines, ensures that it fades harmoniously into every interior. The Dish Drainer Geo is available in the colours of warm grey (mountains) and blue (oceans).
