While still a student, Prokop Chludil designed a plate intended for seniors or those with impaired vision or motor skills. The G. Benedikt Group porcelain works tasked the students of the Ceramics and Porcelain Studio with this project as the topic of their graduate works. Chludil incorporated a stop for easier scooping of meals and his design immediately got the company’s attention. The item was included in the Active collection and other helpful features soon followed, such as contrasting colors and plate partitions. The set continues to be produced at the sister brand Suisse Langenthal, where craftspeople have amicably started calling the ergonomic features “noses.” These protrusions not only provide a functional stop for scooping, but also facilitate easier manipulation with the plate.
