The Skyscraper bowl’s spare decoration, a rim of pierced squares, reflects Meier’s commitment to the Modernist grid in all his commissions large and small. It also recalls the early 20th century designs of both Joseph Hoffman and Charles Rennie Mackintosh. This is the largest version of the 3 sizes produced – 6", 10" and 14" diameters.
