60 years ago, Rosenthal stirred up the porcelain industry – with avantgarde designs by artists, designers and architects. Now we celebrate the studio-line with a limited anniversary collection and transport 60 iconic vases with twelve contemporary colours into the here and now.
In the early and mid-1950s, the "New Look" in porcelain caused a furor with its consequent, matter-of-fact and straight-lined forms. At the end of the 50s, a new, again more romantic trend emerged and took in many areas of life. It was the time of the petticoat and the first country house furniture. This period marked the first presentation of the "Romance" shape by Bjørn Wiinblad, the famous Danish designer. The distinctive feature of "Romanze" is the fine net relief of ovals, dashes and dots (the so-called olive relief), which forms a charming, lively surface. Originally, this pattern was designed by Bjørn Wiinblad as a color décor, but at the suggestion of Philip Rosenthal, he then implemented it as a relief.
Colour limitation: Each vase/colour combination of the collection is limited to 60 pieces worldwide. When sold out, the vase will be produced in another of the 12 anniversary colours (again limited to 60 pieces).
The iF International Forum Design GmbH honours this unique collection with an iF Award 2021 in the category "Professional Concept".
The iF Design Award is one of the most coveted awards in the design scene and honours outstanding design achievements in seven disciplines ranging from product design and architecture to professional concept. This year, the jury of 98 independent international design experts evaluated more than 10,000 submissions from over 40 countries, more than ever before.
