PRESS RELEASE

Porcelain plates inspired by the world's unique buildings and cities, now on Kickstarter.

Studio Lorier announces a new addition in their collection; the City Plate. It is a porcelain platter, shaped in the texture of a well known city and contains the main architectural landmarks. These trays can be used for presenting food, storing items or a great addition to any interior. By running a crowd-funding campaign, Studio Lorier tries to raise enough funds via Kickstarter for a diverse collection of the most popular cities around the world. 

Each plate and landmark is handcrafted in their Rotterdam based studio. All miniature buildings are slib-cast into self made molds. The landmarks are joined as a solid connection and all is finished with a non-toxic, food safe glaze that is even dishwasher proof. 

During the crowd-funding campaign, people can support the project by funding it. Rewards vary from a set of mini landmarks, to an embossed city plate including it's architecture. You can even get a fully customized plate, made to order. Supporters can choose from a list of the most popular cities, that will expand when extra funds will be raised. During the campaign, backers have the possibility to get the city plates for the lowest price ever until December 4th 2018.
