Think Fabricate's first set of china.
Originally produced as a limited edition to coordinate with the company's display at 2010 BKLYN DESIGNS, Brooklyn Plates is a set of transfer printed coup style dinner plates featuring aerial views of Brooklyn from the late 1800s.
Each of the three transferware plates features a portion of a lithographic print by Currier and Ives dating back to 1879, showing a "balloon view" of Brooklyn with its south and west waterfront in the foreground. The three details from the map used on the plates illustrate the Brooklyn Bridge, Brooklyn Heights, and the Navy Yard with Wallabout Bay in the foreground. The reverse side of the each coupe-style plate depicts the Think Fabricate logo - a composition of two overlapping heads forming a light bulb.
Think Fabricate are launching the new line during 7 W New York Tabletop Week from April 12-15, 2011.
Think Fabricate was co-founded by Susan Doban and Jason Gorsline in November 2009 as a multidisciplinary design studio affiliated with Doban Architecture. Think Fabricate's primary goal is to design solutions for better living, learning and community. All of the company's collections are designed and manufactured in Brooklyn, using sustainable materials, natural wood, applied color and historical motifs juxtaposed with modern forms.
