Product Profile | I Kinda Like It Here Coasters by the National Design Collective

The “I Kinda Like It Here” coasters by the National Design Collective come in 2 flavours. The first is the 4 Cities Coasters that celebrate the geographic identities of 4 major Canadian metropolitan areas – Vancouver, Winnipeg, Toronto and Ottawa.

The second is an ode to theNDC’s hometown – Toronto. Appealing to Torontophiles everywhere (well, maybe just Toronto), these coasters limit the celebrations to Canada’s largest city.

The coasters are laser cut from 3mm birch plywood and shipped in sets of 4 with a reusable wood backing. Each set is accompanied by a hand-screen print of the city (or cities) outline(s).

As an additional treat, theNDC has uploaded an animated GIF where you can seeĀ Vancouver under attack by lasers.

Dimensions:
Packaged set: 15″ x 4″
Individual coaster size approximately 3″ across

  1. Am I missing something here or just the coasters? If the coasters have holes in them, how does it leave the table free of watermarks? As a fellow creator in design, this is a something I would make as a joke to see who would actually pay $40 for something eye catching, even when the object is useless for what it was intended for. Anyone who is aware of Banksy would understand this concept.
