1. DESIGN
THAT WHISPERS,
NOT SHOUTS

The dinner plate industry often overlooks strong out of the box designs in favor of decent, dull designs.

Shibui Design offers a variety of plates with a special graphic illustration.

2. REPRESENTING
A SYMBOL
OF JAPAN

Each plate contains an illustration that refers to a symbol of Japan or Japanese culture.
So you’re enjoying your dinner from a plate which is both distinct and meaningful.

3. ART OF
PORCELAIN MAKING 

The plates are made in Arita, which is porcelain heaven. In Arita they know how to make porcelain as they’re doing it for more than 400 years. Each plate is manufactured with great care and with high quality. If you take a closer look, you can actually see it in the porcelains’ great tone of white.

The art of porcelain making was first introduced there in the early 17th century after the mineral which is essential in porcelain making, called kaolin, was found at a local mountain. During the following time period, and even nowadays, the porcelain from Arita became synonymous with the art of porcelain making.

About Nick

I noticed that the dinner plate industry often overlooks strong out of the box designs in favor of decent, dull designs.

If there’s an item that I use multiple times a day, I want it to be elegant yet distinct. I want my guests to enjoy plates with beautiful illustrations in appealing colors instead of plain Janes. 


With Shibui Design, I can offer these plates.
The plates are made in Arita, which is porcelain heaven. In Arita they know how to make porcelain as they’re doing it for more than 400 years. Each plate is manufactured with great care and with high quality. If you take a closer look,

But wait, there’s more.

Besides the high quality, there’s a deeper meaning in the illustration of the plate. Each illustration refers to a specific part of Japan or Japanese culture. Some illustrations refer to an object in Tokyo, others refer to Japanese symbolism.

 Isn’t that great? Enjoying your dinner from a plate which is both distinct and meaningful.


I’m Nick,
I don’t fall for dull.  
Join the distinctiveness.
