Color — Indigo blue
With a glossy glaze and a clean flat surface that curves up at the edge to form a short lip, Bilancia is a timeless beauty that’s striking on its own and a total design chameleon when arranged with other pieces at the table. These plates are handmade from earthenware by master artisans in Italy, and that human touch means each one is subtly unique. In addition to being heat- and scratch-resistant, they’re microwave- and dishwasher-safe—and they’ll probably last you a lifetime.
Founded in 2006 by Jay Vosoghi and Sara Mostofi, R+D.LAB is a Milan-based creative design studio that collaborates with artisans and traditional manufacturers to create beautiful, functional, distinctive home goods. Though we first fell in love with the glassware—each of the artfully curved carafes and finely ribbed chalices is hand-blown in Italy by third-generation glassblowers—their functional objets d'art (earthenware ceramics, stunning wool blankets) are what keep us coming back.
