Todd Borka has designed a line of dishes inspired by OS X and Photoshop that feature a set of humorous concept designs of plates with images of Photoshop-like tools. Borka has affectionately called the collection the iPlate. When asked about the inspiration behind the concept, Borka replied: “Who hasn’t dreamed of being able to manage the details of one’s own life, like we manipulate images on software like Photoshop? Who has never thought to do ‘apple Z’ after breaking a glass? Then, you can try to import directly your steak from your fridge to your plate, change the colour of your fish or rub the beets! ”
The collection covers four main dish types, iPlate “Import Food”, iPlate “Edit Food”, iPlate “Image Size” and iPlate “Ctrl Z”.
Borka is a French illustrator working for both youth literature and magazines. He likes mixing the aesthetic of indian ink with the multiplicity of possibilities offered by image editing software, and he spends most of my time in front of my screen hacking Photoshop. So, obviously, sometimes, it turns me crazy!
