Marc Newson's Dish Doctor


When we came over to look at the new house back in June Chris and Emily had the most amazing dish rack sitting on their counter, and I fell in love with it. They say that imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, so we bought the exact same dish rack that they had.

The Dish Doctor by Marc Newson. I love Newson’s design work and this is a perfect example of why. Bright colors, distinct form, functionality, excellent materials. It all just adds up as good design This is one design that proves that anything can have a unique style and feel – even a dish rack.

The Dish Doctor is made of sturdy polypropylene, and comes in both glossy and translucent colors. The rack is a two piece object that comes apart for  draining the collected water from within. We chose bright orange with green accent tips on the tines that hold the dishes. the color contrasts perfectly when sitting on the black kitchen counters.
