Design Sleuth: Charcuterie Boards at Luce in Portland, Oregon

January 17, 2013

Earlier today, we posted on Portland, Oregon, Italian restaurant Luce, where we admired the wall display of sculptural walnut wood cutting boards.

The boards, by Canadian product designer Geoffrey Lilge, are made from FSC-certified North American maple and walnut with a hand-polished natural oil and beeswax finish. When Lilge was tasked with outfitting his wife Cindy’s restaurant, he become obsessed with finding the perfect cutting boards and the simplicity of solid wood boards, “how they feel, how they are held, and how they wear,” says Lilge. After four years of prototyping and testing “gluttonous amounts of charcuterie,” Lilge and his company, OnOurTable, came up with the perfect design (at least we think so).
