…aren’t these two adorable…makes me smile. The Lai Residence by Lee + Mundwiler Architects.
These delicate plates were created by Japanese company Metaphys. The inspiration for the set came from soft yet refined forms of bubbles and the way they gently connect to each other. Perfect for sushi or any food that requires use of souses and condiments, these plates come in various configurations of three and four.

…each theatre boasts a different color…
