Eating takeway is convenient and fast and usually mean that you don’t have to do a lot of dishes.

But you can improve the takeaway experience by serving it on porcelain plates with cool cutlery.

In a new blog series, we present tableware featuring both classic design and new, young designers.

Bjarke Ingels‘ architecture studio BIG has decorated a set of porcelain tableware with outlines of city skylines from around the world.

BIG collaborated with Danish designers Kilo to add patterns to the TAC tableware set – created in the 1960s and based on a design by architect Walter Gropius and his Boston firm The Architects Collaborative.

“Throughout time people have decorated porcelain with motives from nature and landscapes,” said a statement from BIG. “Architects have planned and designed our cities for centuries and are well known for creating elegant and functional products.”

Twelve city skylines including Copenhagen, London, Berlin, Paris and New York City circle the white BIG Cities tableware pieces. Each incorporates iconic buildings like the Brandenburg Gate, Big Ben or the Eiffel Tower, which are exaggerated to make them easier to distinguish.

The tableware is produced by German porcelain brand Rosenthal.
