Designed in 2012, "A Lotus Leaf" reveals designer Gary Chang's intention to use the shapes of nature, keeping the "design" aspect to a minimum. The lotus leaf, taken from an ancient Summer Palace and then left to dry out for six months, was run through a three-dimensional scanner and then slightly modified to obtain firmer geometric supports. It was then transformed into a mold to produce the steel "copy" that is the tray itself.

The tray can be used on both sides, offering two different ways of holding and serving. The complex ribbing of the lotus leaf enhances the textured quality and reflections of the mirror polished 18/10 stainless steel, with a processing that fully matches the high standards of Alessi production. A part of the "(Un)Forbidden City" project.
