"label_number": "0902",
"title": "Essentiel de Pâtisserie Plate, 2010",
"description": "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.\"",
