"The sun is shining, the fields are blooming,
The days come blossoming and mild,
The evening blossoms, and bright days go down
From the sky downwards, where the days arise.
The year appears with its seasons
In glory, where celebrations abound,
People' activity begins with a new purpose,
Thus are the signs in the world, and the wonders are many."
(Friedrich Hölderlin, 1770-1843)
Around 1790, Peter von Biron, the Duke of Kurland, commissioned the Königliche Porzellan-Manufaktur to design and produce a magnificent dinner service. The "Service mit antiquer Kanthe" was created in a strictly classicist form - because after the courtly rococo with its lavish decorations, recourse to antiquity became the dominant stylistic device. In honor of the duke, this homage to the ideals of antiquity is later renamed KURLAND.
With the To-go porcelain cup in the classic KURLAND design from 1790, KPM Berlin offers a useful as well as environmentally friendly and prettier alternative for every day - handmade in Berlin. Just in time for spring 2021, the manufactory is now presenting the iconic cup in four color variations ranging from pastel pink to pastel green. The edition is limited to the year 2021.
The minimalist, technical design language of the LAB series is inspired by 20th century KPM laboratory porcelain and has been consistently developed further for the modern kitchen laboratory by chief designer Thomas Wenzel. The multifunctional line impresses equally with its timeless design and its extraordinary feel.
The product range of the multifunctional LAB collection is extended by three new products this spring. The LAB Bowl takes up the idea of urban experimental cuisine and transfers it to the dining area at home. Like the healthy fusion recipes that combine various fresh ingredients in one bowl, the LAB Bowl with a capacity of 0.6 liters itself becomes a multifunctional all-rounder. It is thus the perfect companion from breakfast to dinner. The LAB Plate 14 complements it perfectly as a storage surface for bread or toppings as well as a lid.
With a size of 33 centimeters in diameter, the new LAB plate 33 is the perfect piece for all fans of mezze, snack and cake plates.But it also offers enough space for pizza and inspires conviviality and communal dining as a focal point in the tidy big city kitchen.
Die minimalistisch-technische Formensprache der LAB Serie ist inspiriert vom KPM Laborporzellan des 20. Jahrhunderts und wurde von Chefdesigner Thomas Wenzel konsequent für das moderne Küchen-Labor weiterentwickelt. Die multifunktionale Linie beeindruckt gleichermaßen durch das zeitlose Design wie durch die außergewöhnliche Haptik.
Circle and sphere - that's all the young designer Trude Petri, who was inspired by the ideas of the Bauhaus, needed to create a porcelain whose beauty is addictive. The harmonious shapes of East Asian ceramics and the simplicity of flagless coupe plates of the Italian Renaissance were the sources of inspiration for a service that captivates with the timeless aesthetics of its clean lines. Due to the perfect symbiosis of form and function, URBINO has been honored with numerous awards and included in the permanent collection of the Museum of Modern Art in New York.
This is the revitalization of the iconic service classic of the Königliche Porzellan-Manufaktur Berlin in a faceted look. The composition of smooth-glazed porcelain on the plate and matte bisque edge, creates a visually and haptically captivating play of contrasts that provides the ideal stage for exquisite menus.
The rich colors Jaune, Rouge, Bleu and Vert, filigree hand-applied to the porcelain in the master painting of the manufactory, refined by hand-applied real gold polished to a matte sheen, tell of richly decorated rooms, fine dining and select dinner guests. They inspire to enjoy the moment and create an atmosphere that shifts between classic and modern.
