powder coated tray
SAMA, which in Sanskrit means ‘circle’, is the name we have given to our range of of serving trays. Each SAMA Tray is deep drawn – or pressed – from a 1mm sheet of aluminium, and are then powder-coated in one of four colours. They come in three sizes that sit within each other for easy storage. They are perfect for everyday use and very durable.
* Our SAMA Serving Trays are produced in small batches and don’t have any holes we can use to hold them in place while they are being powder-coated. As a result there are two small pin-sized uncoated points near the edges of the handles. Please contact us if you have any concerns.
Our Sama trays were part of our first collection, ‘AYASA’, which in Sanskrit means ‘of metal’. This collection embodies what we set out to do as an Indian design studio. Our idea then – and now – was to celebrate the quiet but considered functionality of Indian household objects, that are often not considered design pieces, but absolutely should be. In India, and the subcontinent, materials such as copper, brass and aluminium are used for eating and drinking rather than just decoration. This collection celebrates the idea that beauty and utility can be in balance.
