What makes Nana’s vision on fine dining interesting is the fusion of Japanese and Western influences and emphasis on the harmony between the cuisine, the tabletop and the seasons. She is known for beautifully coordinated tabletops and signature formula for creating stylish and fashionable dining setups. From flower arrangements to candle decorations  and dinnerware placement, no detail is too small when creating a full dining experience!
Ms. Miyazawa has a long standing collaboration with Glass Studio and frequently features our tableware designs in her styling seminars as well as cooking events. Today we offer you a glimpse into the world of  Nana Miyazawa, illustrating just some of the numerous stylish food presentations using Glass Studio plates and dishes.
We begin the story with some deliciously looking amuse bouche dishes, served in a colorful assortment of designer glass plates with silver colored surface. According to Ms. Nana, this plate design makes even simple amuse dishes look very stylish.

For more casual dining style, Ms. Nana selected a small round glass plate with red flower design. The plate is perfect for serving simple dishes such as club sandwich, but can also be used at breakfast or brunch service.

Alternatively, for more exotic and interesting food presentation, Ms. Nana suggests our design of a glass box with lid. It is ideal for  sharing food at the table such as appetizers, snacks or side dishes. This particular design features our playful “ribbons” pattern.

And finally, desserts! Everyone’s favorite chocolate doesn’t need a particularly elaborate serving strategy – just a simple glass plate in a refined silver color and elegant presentation is guaranteed. In the words of Ms. Nana: “This plate makes anything stylish. Only GS could have this design!”
