oooms: puzzleboard


puzzleboard by netherland based design studio OOOMs is a multipurpose board that can be used both for cutting or as serving plate. by combining boards together, you can extend your workspace ideal for cutting french breads. wine glasses can also fit conveniently into the indented groove of the board. using these beech wood blocks at parties allows guests to enjoy both wine and delicacies while still having one hand free to greet other friends.

the puzzleboard can come in two sizes: 17, 5 cm x 29cm x 1,7 cm 6,9 cm x 11,4 cm x 0,67 inch

  • This should be the winner of Peroni competition!

    gud_jov says:
  • Dumb. What is the purpose of design? To reinvent the cutting board? The cutting board already works.

    Toby Horrocks says:
  • beautiful, simple, creative, useful… i’d say that adds up to make this a good design 🙂

    argenteens says:
  • Even though I’m not a fan of novelty design, this really works. Great idea of increasing or reducing cutting space, say in the instance of a restaurant, where you needed the cutting area for vast quantities of food and then needed to reduce it in order to plate up.

    It would also work well as a trivet with four pertrusions/inclusions rather than 2. Great idea as a self servery, but really should be a bit thinner, as something this size might become a burden when your talking/mingling with people over the duration of a social function.

  • this would be a cool addition to any modern home. designer yet functional. great for serving guests, and a sure conversation piece.
