The theme of the first collection is City as Gateway and the cities chosen are Los Angeles, Shanghai, Cairo and Berlin. With this theme we asked: how is each city dealing with the effects of agglomeration as its population begins to reach critical mass?
The plates’ designs portray a bold, graphic representation of four distinctly fascinating cities. Berlin is the geographical center of Europe. The dramatic white band on the plate marks where the Berlin Wall once stood. Though the reunification of East and West Berlin has not been easy, the fall of the Wall has led to the sharing of ideas, art, and the shape of Europe’s post-Cold War future. Berlin is consistently heralded as a modern marvel, and is regarded as one of the world’s great showcases of architectural freedom and expression.
These porcelain plates measure 12” across, with each city’s downtown core printed on a black background. Key buildings are represented with red icons, while rivers and public spaces are shown in blue and green.
