Description

Diskus Plate

Diskus is a series of porcelain plates that feature phrases about various subjects in calligraphy. Your dinner conversations won’t just be about work, politics, or the children, but also about food, chance, and happiness. Available with two Dutch and two English texts. The name Diskus originates from the Greek word for plate or disc and from discussion or discourse. Diskus was born from a collaboration between calligraphic designer Nicole van Schouwenburg and Royal Delft.

Diskus about food - in Dutch

I believe food is one of the best things life has to offer, in fact ‘I eat, therefore I am.’ If I ask you about you favorite meal of all time, I’m certain you felt very alive at that time, that all your sense were awake. In love, or proud after an achievement, or safe after an ordeal. The meal itself doesn’t really matter.

Idea

Nicole on how it all started: "I like to create calligraphy artworks. Preferably with a brush and blue ink. With panache and curls. In 2005, I stumbled on an idea: I’m going to paint a plate with a phrase that is written from the outside to the inside, making it decorative. At a certain point I thought: it’s almost similar to Delftware! With a concept plate, I visited the Porceleyne Fles in Delft. The people here were immediately impressed and thought my plate would make a good product. We started to create the first series. We performed tests in a laboratory to determine the best blue color and the ideal type of plate. A fun and interesting process”. Today, the plate comes in a beautiful gift box, making the Diskus plate even more suitable as a present.
