John Zox's Holdaplate Cocktail Plate & The Endo Clip Magnet


While pursuing his MBA, John Zox began taking design courses to nurture the right side of his brain. Hidden in plain sight at those famed biz school cocktail parties was an unsolved design challenge: how to hold both a plate and glass in two hands while also attempting to eat or shake someone’s hand. The eureka moment was realizing that the heavy center of gravity, the alcohol & glass, had to remain in-hand; hanging glassware off a plate, like so many solutions on the market, was and is both precarious and inelegant. The Holdaplate was thus born, and with the skill of designer Ding Liu, brought to life for cocktail partygoers everywhere to enjoy.
