Panal is a container for plates, glasses and cutlery. The starting point for Panal came from observing a waitress caring a pile of plates, nervously trying to balance them, as announcing a disaster situation.
Panal looks like a hung piece of fabric that holds in it fragile breakable objects. It seams to reveal the moment immediately before an accident. Looking like it’s made of fabric, what makes it look unstable, in reality Panal is made of plastic and is strongly structured. It reveals the shape of its contents, like if once they went together; the object’s material got frozen in time, celebrating that moment of togetherness.
