Lonc Living Products’ FlipDish is different things to different people. It’s a feast for the eyes for lovers of fine design. It’s a serving dish for dinner or a party. And it’s reversible, so the outside is the inside, depending on how you fold what starts out as a thin flat sandwich of aluminium around a polypropane core. That material is uniquely flexible, so you can fold it and unfold it (and store it flat so it doesn’t take up any space) over and over again. Lonc has come up with a wide range of colourful designs: butterflies and goldfish, Dutch canal houses and Persian mosaics, Swiss cheese and Hollywood Movie Stars, outer space and abstract forms, just to mention a few of the patterns that are applied using a sublimation printing process that is baked to a hard and virtually scratch-proof finish. The flip side of the FlipDish is burnished aluminium that almost glows with a warm lustre. You can design your own pattern if you wish – a corporate logo, for example – just another level of flexibility offered by Lonc.
