Geek Gift! Chat Plates

Chat Plates


“Don’t talk with your mouth full” – maybe that’s what inspired Japanese designer Ikuko Nakazawa to come up with this nice set of porcelain plates.

Quirky and charming, these plates were designed to resemble conversation bubbles from manga, or Japanese comics.

This set of three plates features one large plate and two smaller plates and is perfect for serving small meals and snacks.

The Chat Plates are available from MoMA Store for $45.
