URBINO
1931

In 1931, Trude Petri designed the URBINO collection. Their clarity and aesthetics, created through consistent omission, are based on what is probably the most balanced of all shapes: the circle. The Northern Italian Renaissance and the Italian city of Urbino, which also gave it its name, also provided inspiration. The thin walls of the pieces convey a graceful lightness that supports everyday enjoyment. The so-called coupe plates, whose surface flows uninterrupted up to the edge, were an absolute novelty and a milestone of their time. URBINO received numerous awards, such as the gold medal of the VI. Triennale in Milan or the Grand Prix at the Paris World Exhibition in 1937. Today it is a permanent exhibit at the Museum of Modern Art (MoMa) in New York as a model of timeless porcelain design.

CORSO

URBINO Corso is a further development of a decor from the 1950s. KPM Berlin is now launching a contemporary adaptation - a color gradient that flows from the center outwards and is implemented in inglaze color. This makes the decor particularly durable, scratch-resistant and dishwasher-safe.

Trude Petri worked as a designer for the Berlin Porcelain Manufactory from 1929. Following the aesthetic premises of her time, her work followed the combination of form and function. Fascinated by the perfection of this connection, she developed the URBINO collection in 1931, which is still considered a flawless example of perfect design today.
