Ernest Perera is an innovative designer with an eye for the elegantly practical. His self-drying plate design is, well, rather self-explanatory – but it addresses the age-old problem of the too-full dish rack. Sure, we would like to pretend we all dry our dishes right away or at least keep up with washing them enough to never fill the rack but reality is not always what we wish it to be.


Another design problem with your typical drying process is the rack – it stands out like a sore thumb against a clean modern kitchen design and is not easy to tuck and store as needed. Perera’s system of flexible racks makes it easy to take out the ones you need for a particular occassion and then tuck them away when they are not in use. Plus, don’t these look better than your typical dishrack?
