Ft. Lauderdale-based firm Eisner Rose Associates has been announced as the winner of The Homer Laughlin China Company’s Jonathan O. Parry Design Award.
The restaurant supply company was awarded for its instrumental role in helping Homer Laughlin’s dedicated design department create custom dinnerware for La Cerveceria De Barrio, a Mexican restaurant and bar with two locations in Miami.
The annual award honors the year’s best custom dinnerware project as judged by a panel of china design and graphic design professionals.
This year’s winning design, applied to HLC’s Rolled Edge platters and plates, features the restaurant logo at the 12 o’clock position, a medium-thick blue border stripe just inside the outer rim, and a thicker band of leaves that fill the remainder of the rim.
The leaves have a hand-drawn quality and are in a lighter shade of blue, while space between the leaves is filled with an abstract design in light blue and white that is reminiscent of a blowing breeze, “as though lifting the leaves as they follow the dinnerware’s edge.”
Eisner Rose Associates was founded in 2003 by Jonathan Eisner, whose background is in distribution of foodservice equipment and Scott Rose whose previous experience had seen him manage a top catering company.
The firm is now a major player in supplying the foodservice industry in South Florida.
