City Plates by notNeutral

Melbourne plate by notNeutral
LA-based notNeutral has been developing this line of City Plates in three collections: Gateways, Culture and Capital(ism), and Capital Migration [which includes Melbourne, pictured; look at all those parks!]. They’re available individually, as sets of 4, or as a full set of 12. I hope they’ll continue this idea, maybe including ancient cities, ghost cities, imaginary cities… Or, they could develop the idea of a set further — sprawling cities could become platters, compact cities could become tidbit plates… I want to see some unexpected cities, like Chernobyl or Detroit, in this series.

  1. Wow, planners should take note of how well designed this map is. The streets have hierarchy, the water is blue the parks green. I guess the rest of the city is charred or polluted, but downtown looks fresh and clean.

    But aren’t these too cool to use? I really like all the graphic functional object, but when do they become to much of an image to be an object?

  2. I don’t think they’re “too cool” but, at $50/each, they may be too precious to use! Still, they’re fun to look at.

  4. BTW, I stopped by the CAC store the other day, and my Ohio River coasters are on a shelf right next to the Berlin plate by notNeutral. Fancy!
