0902, Essentiel de Pâtisserie, 2010

A cake platter consists of concentric circles—one orange and one cream—nested around a chocolate brown center plate. Designer Matali Crasset and chef Pierre Hermé created each ring as a movable part, recalling the nested cutters and baking pans used in pastry making. Made of melamine, the rings come together with a satisfying "clack."
