We designed our tray to enhance the culinary experience of eating sushi. The Japanese paper fan for which the tray was modeled after serves as both a cultural icon and a base from which we derived the trays various functions. A corrugated face provides an excellent resting place for the delicate rolls while side rails house the chopsticks. Soy sauce and/or wasabi can be stored in the shallow bowl at the base and the rounded end makes for easy carrying. This sushi tray is more than just a tray. It is a piece of art that can be put on display with or without food.
