Johan Sandström designed a mingle plate named d’glas for d’dimension

d\'glas mingleplate for d\'dimension

In response to a reader who was looking for a mingle plate made of glass, I went scouring the Web.

So far I found one glass tapas plates designed for d’dimension from Sweden.

Johan Sandström designed a plate suitable for both sweet treats and tapas, the salty small dishes. We can read about this young designer on d’dimension Web site:

Johan provides solutions to our everyday problems in a Scandinavian steadfast manner. The outcome is an innovative design combining style and functionality.

Something called social plates, mingling plates are a must because having a free hand while you are socializing at a cocktail event is a necessity.

As you can see from the picture, d’glas fits on top of almost every shape of bar glasses. And when comes the time for bite-sized desserts, I am guessing that d’glas can stand on top of a regular teacup with saucer.

  1. These should be required at corporate cocktail parties and probably non-official ones too. I have had a few accidents by trying to juggle a drink and a food dish in one hand in order to shake someone’s hand – or in my case, so that I have a free hand to reach out and great more food as they whip by at light speed on the caterer trays.


  2. Love, love, love it! Why oh why did it take so long to create something that allows you to mingle, meet and eat at the same time?!

    Glen and ready2spark, I agree. I hope mingle plates will become more popular. That is why I promote every cute model I encountered. I think we only saw the tips of the iceberg in terms of design possibilities.

    I’ve been trying to find the mingle plates I saw a couple of years ago in Germany: flate white porcelain or ceramic, with the notch to hold your wine glass, but the additional feature of a thumb hole in the plate. They looked fabulous and the thumb hole works like an artist holding a palette. They cost about $10 each at the time, but I can’t find them online anywhere. Can you?
