Benjamin Hubert’s design agency Layer has created Charge Tray, a collection of slip cast ceramic trays with an integrated induction charging system for Italian ceramics brand Bitossi Ceramiche.
Charge Tray minimises the visual impact of technology in the home and enables easy wireless charging of technology devices, including both mobile phones and tablets. The trays can also be used to display and store small items.
Designed for use in all areas of the home and office, the Charge Tray collection exudes high craft rather than high tech. The trays are available in four sizes and four glazed finishes – salt, matte, crackle and soba – reflecting the rich and varied palette of the ceramics industry.
A compression moulded silicone module on the underside of each tray houses the induction charging system. The modular nature of the design provides the opportunity for Bitossi Ceramiche to update the Charge Tray collection with new charging technology as it becomes available.
