Thomas O'Brien Lace Platinum Creamer
Thomas O'Brien Lace Platinum Creamer: In Tilden Lace TM dinnerware, O'Brien adopts an unusual vertical field design for a modern shift away from customary concentric china patterns. A matrix of delicate criss-crossing lines is punctuated by quartets of dots a motif that originates in textile thinking, for a light and airy "woven" type of geometry. Alternating centers and rims of pattern create a graphic positive-negative effect on the table. Tilden Lace Platinum features white china with platinum lines and banding and platinum dots. Since his arrival on the New York design stage, O'Brien has been widely recognized for his trademark style of "warm modernism," bringing vanguard mid-century forms and furnishings into a context of classic comfort. In both interiors and products, his firm promotes understated elegance with a pulse on tradition, deploying pairings of old and new, sophisticated and simple, to create a style that feels at once refined and familiar.
