Rotterdam-based Studio Lorier has added another design innovation to their portfolio of transformable furniture and handcrafted ceramics: the City Plate. The porcelain platters are shaped in the texture of a well-known city and feature its main architectural landmarks. These trays can be used for presenting food, storing personal items or as interior decor. To offer a diverse collection of the most popular cities around the world, Studio Lorier has launched a Kickstarter campaign to raise funds to complete the series.
Each plate and landmark is handcrafted in their Rotterdam studio. The miniature buildings are slib-cast into self-made molds. The landmarks are joined as a solid connection and finished with a non-toxic, food-safe glaze that is dishwasher proof.
Rewards for contributing to the crowdfunding campaign include a set of mini landmarks, an embossed city plate including its architecture, and a fully customized plate, made to order, for a more substantial pledge. Supporters can choose from a list of the most popular cities that will expand when additional funds are be raised. During the campaign, backers have the possibility to get the city plates for the lowest price ever until December 4th 2018.
