The "Special" food platter for the Draft House was a request from the client to have a unique board to serve the special of the day on (paired with a craft beer of the customerʼs choice).
The design was developed from the initial stages of general look and feel (with regards to visuals, functionality and use) through to the structural development of the handle to ensure stability.
The boards were laser etched with the logo and finished with beeswax and olive oil. The structural handle/holder also holds the board above the table, allowing the pint glass to sink into it while being carried.
The wooden part was hand made by a carpenter in Dublin and had 2 sections - food and drink. The drink section had a hole in it to allow a pint glass to sit into it.
The intricate copper piping construction was welded together and the holes were closed off with brass ends from 12-Gauge Shotgun Shells which fit perfectly into their slots like they were made for them. The copper structure also allowed a slot for an additional tray to be carried.
The design allowed the waiter to carry the entire meal AND a pint in one hand with perfect balance.
