Place is a set of trivets that is designed with as much emphasis on when they are in use as when they are not in use. Trivets are generally covered up when in use or stowed away when not in use, but I wanted to design an object that can be stored in sight on the table as a sculptural piece. The linear profiles on the surface of the trivets act as cooling ribs when you place something hot on them and as a positioning guide when they are stacked. The profiles on the top and bottom of the trivets have different angles, creating an interesting graphic display when they are stacked.
