“Trayscape”, designed by Urbanus, is part of the project “(Un)Forbidden City”. In the kitchen or in the living room the empty “Trayscape”, waiting for something that will come, looks like a table sculpture, a dark stone shaped like a lake landscape surrounded by the gentle hills that you can find in a precious, traditional Chinese garden. The full “Trayscape” is turned upside-down and the edges of its landscape became the support and the flat surface becomes the place where objects or food lay down to be served. The two different souls belonging to “Trayscape”, the expectations arising from the empty object and the functional use of the full tray are to be felt separately. The one excludes the other.
