Porzellanikon Selb is located in a former Rosenthal factory which closed down in 1969. With its imposing chimneys and its ensemble of buildings huddled together like a castle complex, the site has very much the feel of a well-fortified labyrinth.
You find yourself surrounded by the legendary product range and a whole host of classical pieces from the firm’s more than 140-year history. All this is found in the porcelain factory’s old converted kiln house, a place where the world-renowned brand was produced before moving to the new Rosenthal am Rothbühl factory designed by Walter Gropius. Renowned artists and designers decorated and designed porcelain, glass, ceramic, metal and furniture for Rosenthal.
Highlights of the exhibition are objects by Salvador Dalí, Otto Piene, Günther Uecker, Victor Vasarely and many more.
On the website of the Porzellanikon you will learn everything about current special exhibitions, opening hours and entrance fees.
