Here's a fantastic example of "less is more." By removing a very specific chunk of material, French industrial design firm Contexte turns a piece of wood into a function-increased cutting board and serving board.
"Mudra is a simple, practical and minimalist cutting board. Thanks to the cut in the board, you can cut your vegetables and pour them out without them falling out. But there is a second function that allows you to use it as a tasting tray by turning it over. It has been designed to be used for both purposes depending on your needs and everyday situations."
Contexte writes that the made-in-France boards are available in Oak or Beech, but I was unable to find a retailer online for a price.
