Tabletop: Marc Newson Bone China Picnic Ware

Sarah Lonsdale February 25, 2010

On a recent trip to LA, we stopped in at Tortoise Life on Abbott Kinney, one of our favorite stores anywhere. We’ve featured owner Taku Shinomoto’s DIY and Picnic Tables before; on this visit, we admired the table settings. What appears at first glance to be paper picnicware and plastic flatware is actually the Bone China Tableware line from Australian designer Marc Newson (which he created for Japanese company Idee in 2001). The line is back in production by Alessi, and is now available directly from Tortoise.

Above: Set of two plates (includes dinner and salad size); $100. Knife, fork, and spoon set; $36.

Above: Bone China Cups; $20 for the 3-inch-high cup, $25 for the 4.5-inch-high cup.
