Porcelain Platters for Sofitel on Collins

Sofitel on Collins in Melbourne has commissioned R L Foote Design Studio to create 24 porcelain platters for a part of VIP room turndown service during the Australian Open 2018. The platters reflected the French heritage of the hotel, and took inspiration in architectural structures of the hotel itself and Louvre with its glass pyramid, both designed by the iconic architect I.M. Pei. 

Each platter has been coated with this crystalline glaze, where crystals start to grow into unique brilliant patterns inside the molten glaze during the firing process, from thousands and thousands of tiny crystals giving a satin finish, or glossy look with fewer large crystals.

The results were striking, with no two platters looking the same.
