Inspired by the idea of play, Kris created Plato because he truly believes that play and creativity are important parts of our lives. Like the building blocks from our childhood we are only limited by our imagination as to what can be assembled using this system. Plato provides an outlet for play that results in functional and beautiful everyday objects. Beyond lighting Kris wants to apply the same principles of play to other products. Kris brings a combination of Danish and New Zealand origins influencing Plato, coupling South Pacific ingenuity and a "can do" attitude with the simplicity, minimalism and functionality of Scandinavian design heritage.
