When designing Plato Collection, Defne Koz focused on the refined craftsmanship of Uniqka and wanted to create a contemporary product for everyday use. Making of Plato is informed by leathercraft heritage and finesse. Plato is handcrafted with centuries old cuir bouilli (boiled leather) technique, using vegetable-tanned leather, an eco-friendly leather tanned with traditional methods. With Plato, Defne Koz and Uniqka developed new techniques to have a very clean and modern product.

The result is the Plato Collection, a series of trays and organizers in various sizes, shapes and colours.
