I'm sure you've all seen the beautiful blue and white Delft pottery designs from the Netherlands in the sixteenth to the eighteenth centuries. Well, it's the 21st century now and that beautiful romantic period has become an age of complete urban decay. This cool and somewhat depressing new set of New York Delft Dinnerware captures these changing times perfectly.
As you look closer at this amazing Delft-inspired dinnerware, you will notice that the iconic blue illustrations typically showcasing windmills, fishing boats, landscapes and other Dutch scenery have been replaced with their modern New York equivalents like graffiti, hot dog stands, taxi cabs and garbage trucks. Designers Lovegrove & Repucci have brought a striking modernity to the traditional form in this amazing 5-piece porcelain dinnerware set that includes a large plate, a small plate, a bowl, a cup and saucer.
I wonder what other modern day icons could be incorporated into funny plates like this? Let us know in the Comments if you have any more good ideas.
