Aurea Dish Rack (grey) des Ernest Perera, 2008 (made by Delica)
Fabricated from rot-proof compressed wood, Aurea takes up minimal space. Designer Ernest Perera says it's a framework for everyday items that simultaneously serves to drain your dishes. He's right - the slim verticals give it a display like quality, which is certainly a vast improvement on a pile of crockery waiting in vain to be dried up. An elegant opportunity to create some order!
