Think Fabricate Plates

These transfer printed coupe style dinner plates were produced in a limited edition to coordinate with Think Fabricate’s display at the 2010 BKLYN DESIGNS and are part of the permanent decorative arts collection of The Brooklyn Museum.

Each transferware plate features a portion of a lithographic print by Currier and Ives dated 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 8 3/8″ diameter coupe-style plates depicts the Think Fabricate logo, a composition of two overlapping heads forming a light bulb, designed by Live from Brooklyn, a graphic design firm.
