Graphic Cutting Boards & Clocks by David Weatherhead
Sometimes you need more than one cutting surface, or one board is just too big to manage while another is too small to serve its purpose. Modeled after the classic peace symbol shape cut like pie-piece sections, this combination of cutting boards cleverly addresses such issues.
This design by David Weatherhead lets keep all of the parts together to use as a single board (and for flat-and-easy storage), but break them up as needed too in order to cut or serve food.
Clearly a fan of bold modern colors, perfect circles and other geometric shapes, his other designs follow similar principles of clear simplicity – these include decorative objects, office supplies, calendars, shelves and other useful wall-mounted accessories.
Of particular interest are Weatherhead’s simple yet supremely stylish time pieces, which come in all shapes, colors and varieties, from cuckoo clocks and wall clocks to unusual finds like “toymaker’s clocks,” which are small and rectangular. In fact, if you’re ever searching for just the right clock for a modern space, you’d do well to search among his creations for inspiration.
